Speech and Language
Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) in our Preschool Speech and Language program screen, assess, identify and treat speech, language, voice, fluency (stuttering), listening, and social communication concerns in children from birth to 5 years old. Communication Disorder Assistants (CDAs) play an important role in providing treatment services under the supervision of Speech-Language Pathologists.
Our approach to treatment is built on the principle that parents / caregivers are the main teachers of their child’s speech and language development.
Treatment can be offered through a variety of avenues including groups, all with a focus on teaching parents and caregivers how to promote skills on a daily basis, not just while at therapy.
Preschool children with ONLY speech and language concerns, can be referred by parent(s)/guardian, any other agency or school can refer, but must have parent/guardian sign the bottom portion of the referral form or submit with a signed consent from parent or legal guardian. Please note: We only accept PSL referrals up OCT 31 of the child's JK entry year.
* If a child requires speech along with Occupational and/or Physiotherapy services a referral must come from a physician. Speech ONLY see above.
Referrals can be faxed to: 613-961-2529.
For referral information call 613-969-7400 x 2264
