Speech & language

Provincially funded, personalized treatment for better communication

Speech and language⁠ — they help us communicate and interact with the world around us. But they also help us to express our unique selves, from belting out a favourite song in the car, to nailing that big job interview and asking the important questions in life.

If you’re concerned that you, your child or your baby is experiencing challenges with speech or language, we can help you get to the root of the issue. Our speech-language pathologists treat every person on an individual level and develop custom plans to help them get their voice back.
