"The heart of communication is the
combination of science, a caring
relationship, and engagement," speech
pathologist Colette Reynolds states. "You
have to have a message to share and a
reason to share it."
Even after 37 years of
working in the speech
language pathology field,
Colette still maintains
her enthusiasm
and passion for
her work. "Every
client is different,"
Colette shares.
"There are always
new challenges,
new issues, and
new technologies
and opportunities to
explore."
Surprisingly, Colette was
a Spanish major in college.
"I moved to Virginia after
graduating from college
and started looking for a
job," Colette recalls. "The
prospects were discouraging,
and I kept thinking about an experience
I had working with a great speech
pathologist during a college internship at
Easter Seals. I was motivated to go back
to school and earn a master's degree in
speech pathology." Colette graduated from
George Washington University in 1982 and
has never looked back.
Colette "grew up" in her new profession at
Children's National Hospital in Washington,
DC, working first in a preschool program
and later a clinical program over a period
of seven years. It was here that she
discovered her passion for cleft care while
working on a cleft lip and palate team in the
specialty clinic, and she has been involved
in the field ever since.
For almost 30 years, Colette has been a
member of the cleft lip and palate team
at INOVA Fairfax Hospital. The team
of medical professionals meets twice a
month to review and discuss the current
cases. "Each team member meets with
the child and family, and we assess status,
review or modify the treatment plan, or
establish a plan of care if it is a first-time
visit," Colette explains. "We see the child
regularly through their teen years based on
changing needs."
Colette left Children's Hospital and moved
with her family to Fauquier County in 1990.
In tandem, Colette began her own speech
therapy private practice in Warrenton.
Colette sees children from birth to early
teens, working on articulation and
expressive language delay
(not talking by age two or
three), and working with
parents so that they
can practice what they
learn at home. "I
love helping parents
help their children
learn to talk, play,
and make friends,"
Colette says. As a
contractor for the
R a p p a h a n n o c k
Rapidan Community
Services Infant and
Toddler Connection of
Virginia (ITC), Colette
also provides speech
therapy services to infants
and toddlers in the comfort of
their homes.
With her years of experience
and wealth of knowledge,
Colette has begun to feel the need to give
back to her community and share her
insights with her colleagues. In conjunction
with Integrated Training Collaborative and
Partnership for People with Disabilities
at Virginia Commonwealth University,
she developed a series of two one-hour
webinars entitled Refresh Your Palate,
Cleft Lip and Palate Care, Birth to 3 =
Team Care. "My purpose was to fill in the
gaps in training, to help early intervention
practitioners understand the developmental
needs related to clefting and provide the
proper early support," Colette explains. To
view these archived webinars, visit
www.
veipd.org/main.
There are many new areas of speech
pathology coming into play. "We are
experimenting with tele-practice, where
we conduct our sessions face-to-face
via computer," Colette says. "There are
many occasions for speech pathologists
to work with developmental and medical-
based conditions. I want to encourage
students to consider speech therapy as a
profession. There are many job settings
for providing care from birth throughout
the lifespan, enhancing lives through
better communication." To learn more, call
