I Started an EI Agency with Ryan Landinguin


What we discuss:

  • Ryan’s #1 tip for finding high-quality therapists to staff her agency (and how she keeps them loyal and happy!)
  • How Ryan maintains quality in the face of tremendous growth
  • How she’s expanding into new communities by hiring bilingual therapists
  • How Ryan is leveraging group classes for her community in order to build trust and relationships and referrals (and how you can do this too!)

Guest: Ryan Landinguin, CCC-SLP
After working as first grade teacher for three years, I knew my passion was working with children individually and in small groups. There is no greater feeling than seeing a child independently use the skills you have taught them.  Shortly after, I went back to school to become a Speech Pathologist and discovered my true calling. 

Since graduating, I have worked in both the private clinic and public school settings. I have a broad range of experience working with children (birth to high school) who present with a wide variety of mild to severe communication delays and disorders. In addition, I am trained in incorporating augmentative and alternative devices (i.e. iPads) into therapy as well as your child’s everyday life.
