Rylie Ranae Woods, MS, CCC-SLP, speech-language pathologist at Cornerstone Behavioral Health and Pediatric Therapies, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Healthcare Professionals for dedication, achievements, and leadership in speech-language pathology.
Since 2022, Ms. Woods has specialized in treating children with autism, constituting 90% of her caseload at Cornerstone Behavioral Health and Pediatric Therapies, a private practice clinic. Her expertise spans working with children aged 18 months to 14 years, focusing on social, communication, and play-based therapies for those with moderate to severe diagnoses. She adopts a child-centered approach, aiming to build language foundations from scratch while leveraging individual strengths.
Before embarking on her professional path, Ms. Woods obtained a Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology at the University of Central Oklahoma in 2022. She also earned the CCC-SLP certification, granted by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) to speech-language pathologists meeting stringent academic, clinical, and examination criteria.
Outside her professional obligations, Ms. Woods actively engages in diverse spheres of speech-language pathology. She holds affiliations with the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association and ASHA, volunteers at a self-launched social skills camp, contributes to an Oklahoma rehabilitation hospital, and joins community walks dedicated to autism awareness.
Ms. Woods credits her success to “never giving up,” and refusing to be defined by others’ opinions. Inspired by her grandfather’s rehabilitation journey with speech therapy, she chose to become a speech pathologist, driven by a belief that “everyone deserves a voice.” Her goals include advancing within her private practice, expanding her work in hospitals and rehabilitation centers, and establishing her own practice within the coming years.
