Diane Waterman

Speech-Language Pathologist

Diane worked in a public school setting in New York state for 18 months with mild-severe developmentally delayed children where she gained experience in working with language disorders, alternative communication systems, and developing programs for children with autism.

Relocating to Nashville with her family in 1984, Diane worked in private practice with Martha E. Lynch and Associates for 18 years and remained in the South Nashville office when Helen Duhon took over the practice following Ms. Lynch's retirement in June of 2003.

Diane has worked extensively with cleft palate, voice disorders, tongue thrust/swallowing disorders, Down Syndrome, developmental verbal dyspraxia, fluency, Asperger Syndrome, autism, auditory perceptual/processing disorders, language delay and phonological disorders. While working with Ms. Lynch, she developed personalized early reading programs to assure her clients' success in the classroom while they struggled with overcoming their speech and language difficulties. She is very enthusiastic about her long-term clients and their success academically. She enjoys working with very young children as well as older children and adults.

In the past, Diane has worked as an adjunct instructor at Middle Tennessee State University with college students entering the field of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology.

Diane holds a license from the Tennessee Board of Communication Disorders and a Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA).
