Hi! I am Leanne Pool, owner of Dynamic Speech Solutions LLC. I want to share my story about why I decided to open my private practice. In May 2016, my husband retired after serving 20 years in the US Marine Corps. As a military wife, I was fortunate to live overseas and in 6 different states. Moving around was a wonderful experience, which allowed me to grow as a speech language pathologist. During graduate school, my clinical experience was providing accent modification training to non-native English speakers, providing therapy to children with multi-disabilities, and working with adults in acute, inpatient and outpatient care. I have worked in a variety of settings, such as: inclusion classrooms, center based programs, public and private schools, classrooms using a push-in model, and in client’s homes. I had the opportunity to work with children of all ages who had speech and/or language disorders that ranged from mild to severe. I have provided therapy to children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders, multiple disabilities, articulation, phonology, language, motor speech, and fluency disorders. Many of the settings I worked in gave me experience teaching children how to use augmentative and alternative communication (AAC).
