Hello! My name is Dominique Payne and I have recently joined the amazing team at TherapyWorks! I earned my Masters degree in Speech-Language Pathology and my Bachelors degree in Communicative Sciences and Disorders at the University of Rhode Island in Kingston, RI. I have been lucky enough to work with children from birth to age 21 for the past 8 years.
I work individually and on a team to complete diagnostic assessments and create individualized treatment plans for children with a wide range of speech and language disorders. I am passionate about working with children and their families and I’m so grateful to have the opportunity to help make communication possible for my patients. I love utilizing the knowledge that I have acquired over the past several years and coaching parents to then implement those strategies at home. Parents play an integral role in helping their child transfer the skills learned in therapy and provide opportunities to practice and master those skills.
I have experience working in various pediatric settings including outpatient clinics, schools, and early intervention (home visits). I served as the lead speech pathologist and clinical coordinator at a previous private practice location. I’ve been fortunate enough to work with children who have Childhood Apraxia of Speech, articulation disorders, phonological disorders, receptive and expressive language disorders, stuttering, Autism Spectrum disorders, language processing disorders, pragmatic/social communication disorders, developmental delays, phonological awareness and reading difficulties, executive functioning, and feeding difficulties.
I currently live in Spring Hill, TN with my husband. We both love music and our favorite thing to do together is go to concerts. I am thrilled to be part of such a wonderful team and look forward to helping you and your child reach their goals!
