Guest: Leanna Vollintine, CCC-SLP
A pediatric speech-language pathologist with more than 15 years experience working with children ages 1 year to 20 years across a variety of communication delays and medical disorders.
After graduating from the University of North Texas with a Master’s degree in speech-language pathology in 2003, I have dedicated my career to improving the functional communication potential of each child with whom I work.
With a professional proficiency in Spanish, I am able to assess and treat bilingual children and discuss services with parents.
I hold certification in Beckman Oral-Motor assessment and treatment, and have extensive experience with articulation, language, and fluency. I understand the importance of total communication, including the integration of signs, picture symbols, and communication devices to expand children’s expressive abilities.
