Janet Reyes is a Bilingual Spanish-English Speech-Language Pathologist. She is also intermediate level in American Sign Language. She completed her Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from California State University, Los Angeles. During her time there she was part of an interdisciplinary field training partnership between the Rongxiang Xu College of Health and Human Services at Cal State LA and the USC Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of the University of Southern California. This training prepared Janet to work in community-based agencies (children 0-5) and school settings (PreK- High School) as part of an interdisciplinary team, which provided oral health education, conducted oral health screenings, identified speech/language delays/disorders, and connected families to dental health homes and other resources.
Clinically, Janet’s experience varies from early intervention to the schools to acute care in the hospital setting. Janet has developed skills assessing and treating infants to adults ranging from speech, language, fluency, voice, and swallowing disorders.
Janet’s training and personal philosophy values strengths-based, culturally responsive, and community-based practice. She approaches her work in a way that values and leverages the culture and cultural resources of the families served. She is a Certified LSVT LOUD clinician, has completed the Modified Barium Swallow Impairment Profile Training, and is currently pending Assistive Technology Applications Certification and training in the Implementation of LSVT LOUD in Pediatric Motor Speech Disorders. When she is not providing therapy or learning, Janet enjoys hiking, traveling, working on her podcast, taking road trips with her teenage son.
