online services now available

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently offering telehealth services ("video chat" online). This means we can work with anyone across Alberta!  Research shows that telehealth is effective for providing speech & language services.

 

We use an encrypted software to safeguard your privacy. Due to the nature of telehealth, some speech & language concerns may not benefit from this type of service. Let's chat to see if it would work for you!

If telehealth is not right for your family, we may be able to offer in-person services at your home. Safety is our priority, so precautions will be taken.

our services

FREE CONSULTATION

Questions about our service? Is speech therapy right for your family? What does a therapy session involve?

We offer a free 15 minute call (phone or video chat) to discuss your specific concerns, meet your child, and decide together if moving forward with our services will be right for your family.

speech assessment

Assessments provide valuable information about your child's communication skills and levels of functioning in speech and language. Testing protocols are selected based on the needs of the client.

An assessment includes: individualized informal testing to determine if a speech/language delay or disorder is present; post-assessment consultation with family to determine next steps; and an informal written summary

individual therapy

We provide professional, personalized, one-on-one therapy sessions with your child.

Sessions are typically on a weekly basis, but this can vary based on your individual needs. We set functional goals and use evidence-based practices to incorporate your child's interests. This makes the sessions fun and engaging, and will maximize your child's learning.
