Consultation, Assessment, and Therapy:


KIDSPEECH™ provides speech pathology and cognitive-communication assessments and therapy for infants, young children, teens, adults, and seniors.

We work with clients who have learning disabilities, autism, asperger's syndrome, strokes, literacy/ academic issues, cognitive communication problems post an acquired brain injury or concussion, fluency (stuttering or cluttering),developmental problems, myofunctional difficulties (ie drooling), voice disturbances (hoarseness, vocal nodules), or behavioural issues.

Specialized services are available to parents who have concerns about their child’s speech, language, cognitive communication, literacy skills, writing, behaviour, school performance, memory, expressive language and processing skills. As well, we provide early stimulation intervention and home programmes for parents with babies. Early intervention is key and parental training is most valuable. We also help parents make the best school choice for their children. During the first consultation (approx. 1.5- 2 hours), we review the history, concerns and conduct a comprehensive assessment to obtain an overview of the difficulties. We answer questions and discuss treatment options. Since each client is unique, the approach is tailored to the individual’s needs.

KIDSPEECH™ can also assist in accent reduction in adults, and provides consultation and treatment to adults who have experienced a stroke or other neurological injury including treatment for comprehension and expression problems.
