Brady West Welcomes New Rehab Director/Speech Pathologist
Wednesday, December 16, 2009 • Posted December 16, 2009

Brady West is pleased to announce the hiring of full time Speech-Language pathologist and Rehab Director Corrie Dyson. A native of San Saba, Corrie received a Bachelor of Behavioral Science degree in Speech-Language Pathology from Hardin Simmons University, and a Master of Science degree in communication sciences and disorders from Abilene Christian University.

She currently holds a certificate of clinical competency in speech-language pathology and is a member of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.

Dyson worked for three years with school-aged children in Brady and Dallas ISDs before discovering her passion for working with the geriatric population in 2003.

Since that time, she has studied techniques in cognitive rehabilitation and in working with persons with dementia. She has also been certified in administration of Modified Barium Swallow (FEES) and in vital stim therapy for restoration of swallow function in adults.

She enjoys knowledge, insight, and deep values of the "Greatest Generation," and feels blessed to be able to give back to those people who sacrificed so much in their lifetime to preserve the freedoms we have today.

Dyson and her husband, Shane, live in Mason, where Shane is the owner of Lone Star Event Rentals. They have recently re-located from the Abilene area, where Dyson served as Rehab Director for Wisteria Place Nursing and Rehab (formerly Sears Methodist Center) and for Windcrest Alzheimer’s Care Center.

She is the daughter of Ronnie and Lesa Schulze of San Saba, and is the granddaughter of Laura Lawson and the late R. Clinton Schulze of Mason.

"We are pleased to have Corrie as part of our rehabilitation team, she has the knowledge and experience our residents can benefit from," said Admission Director Tammy West. "Corrie is not only excited about her job with Brady West but also about being a part of community and local organizations as well."
