Linda Bell

Speech-Language Pathologist

Linda joined the Franklin Speech & Learning Center in June, 1999. She has a background in education as well as speech-language pathology. After receiving a BS in Education from George Peabody College for Teachers of Vanderbilt University in 1980, she taught preschool and kindergarten for four years and worked one year with students with emotional and behavioral impairments.

She returned to graduate school, and in 1987, she received her Master's of Science in Speech-Language Pathology from Vanderbilt University. Since graduating, Linda has had experience evaluating and treating children and adolescents with a variety of communication disorders, in many different settings.

Her areas of interest include working with toddlers through adolescents with articulation and phonological disorders, apraxia, language delay/disorders, auditory processing difficulties, and fluency disorders. Linda draws from her educational background to integrate pre-academic and academic skills, including reading, in her therapy as she treats speech-language impaired children.

She provides a strong system of support for the children she serves by working closely with parents and school staff to assure optimal benefit of therapy. Her strong reputation for making a difference in the lives of children and their families is due to her caring concern and history of successful treatment programs.

Linda is licensed by the Tennessee Board of Communication Disorders and holds a Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA).
