We recognize that each situation is unique.

Sometimes a family wants more support at home or in their community program. Also, school programs may require assessment or intervention services to support a child in their classroom. Our Consultation & Therapy Services allow you to design your own program by choosing from any of the services offered.

What does a Speech-Language Pathologist do?

Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) assist children with their ability to talk and understand. As each child communicates in their own unique way, our Speech-Language Pathologists spend time understanding the child’s level before planning treatment activities or providing consultation.

Consultation Services:

Consultative Services address concerns indirectly by providing strategies that are based on your child’s developmental abilities; family and/or school identified needs, the resources available; as well established rehabilitation practices. Our therapists can meet with you as often as you need within the school, at home, in the community or at our Centre.

Therapy Services:

Therapy Services address concerns directly with your child. Our therapists will provide direct intervention to your child on a regular basis. Therapeutic treatment is more intensive than consultation. Treatment plans are based on your child’s developmental abilities, family-identified needs, and the resources in the home or community setting; as well as established rehabilitation practices.

Treatment might include:

  • use of gestures, sign language, talking devices or picture exchange systems to help a child to understand messages and share information
  • planning activities to assist a child to move from using single words, to using short phrases or sentences
