Lynne Alba graduated from California State University, Long Beach with her Masters Degree in Communication Disorders. She was a member of Phi Kappa Phi, an Honor Society. She completed three clinical rotations prior to graduation. During these internships, Lynne worked as an intern in a hospital, a student teacher in a classroom with children with severe language disorders, and an itinerant speech therapist in the pubic school system.
Lynne is a Senior Speech and Language Pathologist with over 15 years experience in both the pediatric and adult populations. She founded Lynne Alba Speech Therapy, Professional Corporation in 1991 while working at Rancho Los Amigos Medical Center, a nationally acclaimed rehabilitation facility.
She worked at RLAMC for six and a half years. During the last four years, she supervised a number of Adult SIL Services, including Brain Injury, Stroke, Neurogenic Disorders and Geriatrics.
Prior to her work at RLAMC, she was employed at the well-known Switzer Center (a private school and clinic for children and adolescents with learning and behavioral difficulties) where for the last two and a half years of her tenure, she was the Clinical Coordinator of the Speech Department.
She has worked with both adults and children with a wide variety of difficulties such as Articulation and Language Impairments, Autism, Developmental Disability, ADHD, Auditory and Language Processing Disorders, Learning Disabilities, Verbal Dyspraxia, Dysarthria, Stroke, and Brain Injury.
Recently Lynne was trained in PROMPT, an innovative therapy technique used to help patients form sounds and words through direct and indirect manipulation of the speech structures (e.g., lips, tongue, jaw, and so forth). It involves using multiple cues (e.g., auditory, visual, touch, and movement) to give feedback to help develop clear and well-timed speech.
Lynne has earned a reputation for her keen diagnostic skills and her ability to develop targeted programs that have led to a high treatment success rate.
