Becky Mitchum, MS, CCC-SLP, CBIS Joins WRMC PROS

White River Health System (WRHS) is pleased to welcome Becky Mitchum, speech-language pathologist (SLP), to WRMC PROS Therapy team.
Becky earned a master’s degree in Communication Sciences & Disorders from the University of Central Arkansas. Prior to joining us, Becky was the SLP on the pediatric rehab team at NeuroRestorative Timber Ridge Ranch, a post-acute inpatient rehabilitation facility for patients with traumatic brain injuries. Becky is a Certified Brain Injury Specialist (CBIS) with training in hippotherapy, an electrical stimulation application called Ampcare, NeuroDevelopmental Treatment (NDT), and Orton-Gillingham for dyslexia. 

Speech-language pathology is Becky’s second career.  She was a violinist with the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra for over 25 years. In 1995, she started the string program at Lyon College.  She taught violin to children as young as three using the Suzuki method.  
Becky believes that for patients with certain conditions, incorporating elements of music in treatment can be a powerful and evidence-based tool.  Becky enjoys treating people of all ages and relishes the idea of building a greater SLP pediatric presence for WRHS.

Becky is a member of the American Hippotherapy Association (AHA) and the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).  Along with their two dogs MataHairy and Mr. Buck, Becky and her husband Johnny are happily returning to Johnny’s roots and calling Batesville home.
