  • Receive help in navigating and applying to the Ontario Autism Program
  • Gain valuable resources
  • Make connections with other families

Speech and Language Screener Days

Is your child on a waitlist for Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) services? Are you looking to understand how you can support them while you wait? Our Speech-Language Pathologist, Alex Greco, will be hosting free Speech and Language Screener Days. See the schedule below.

Book a spot to better understand your child’s level of speech, language and communication needs and gain some insight on strategies and next steps from a registered Speech-Language Pathologist.

This service is being offered free to all families in our region, regardless of diagnosis.
