Elizabeth (Libby) Richardson Swindle, MS-CCC-SLP

Licensed Speech Pathologist 

Elizabeth has been working as a pediatric outpatient speech therapist at CIT. Elizabeth performed her clinical rounds at our clinic during her training and we were so impressed with her that when she moved back to Oregon we hired her! Elizabeth has worked with children from various backgrounds and diagnoses including traumatic brain injury, genetic conditions, speech sound disorders, language delays/disorders, and feeding delays. Collaboration with occupational and physical therapist along with her clients’ parents is an integral part of her daily job. During her graduate education, She had the privilege of working with children in various settings, including Children’s Intensive Therapy. Elizabeth spent the summer of 2020 as well as the winter of 2021 working at Children’s Intensive Therapy where she learned the importance of interprofessional collaboration as she worked with the supervising Speech Language Pathologist, occupational therapists, and physical therapists to treat children with diverse cognitive, linguistic, and physical abilities. Elizabeth also lived abroad in Panama City, Panama for two and a half years where she worked with children with special needs and cultivated her appreciation of, and curiosity for, other languages and cultures. While her Spanish-speaking abilities are limited, her understanding of Latin American culture has proved beneficial. Both her formal education and cultural immersion experiences have shaped the holistic approach she has adopted when providing therapy. Elizabeth is eager to work your child and the child's’ families.
