Lynette Toma 

Lynette’s approach to speech therapy is grounded in understanding the importance of creating supportive spaces for children to foster communication and confidence. Through her 18 years of experience in homes and school-based settings, Lynette evaluates a child's individual needs in order to develop unique teaching strategies to optimize learning. She has a high level of experience working with children with autism and ADHD, as well as hearing impairment, cochlear implants, childhood apraxia of speech, Down syndrome, auditory processing disorder and global developmental delays. She has extensive experience with various forms of assistive technology, including work with PECS and speech-generating devices such as Proloquo2go, TouchChat CoWriter, Notability, and Choiceworks.  Most recently, she authored a children's book entitled, "I Can Dance, Too!" which teaches children to accept and appreciate differences amongst peers. Lynette is currently licensed to practice speech therapy in the state of California. She holds a bachelor's of science in Communication Science and Disorders from Wayne State University and a certification in Assistive Technology Applications from California State University Northridge.
