How is speech-language pathology
rehabilitation beneficial?

The primary role of the speech-language pathologist is to detect, assess, and diagnose delays and disorders
that affect language, speech, communication, articulation, swallowing, or voice, etc.

After the assessment, the speech-language pathologist builds an intervention plan and identifies targeted goals
to begin the therapy. The therapy is personalized and adapted for ALL clients, according to their age and needs.

  • The speech-language pathologist helps your child progress and to achieve success through encouragement and positive reinforcement.
  • The speech-language pathologist offers strategies and attitudes to adopt at home to promote your child’s communication.
  • The speech-language pathologist also recommends educational tool (computer, more time, visual aids, etc.) to ensure that the child is accompanied fully during their academic development.
  • The speech-language pathologist also strives to strengthen the child’s self-confidence and motivation.

Adult

  • Communication is the key to our daily life ! We need to interact with our family, our friends, our colleagues… When a communication disorder appears, our social life suffers directly, when can influence our mood and restrict our activities. Thus, the speech-language pathologist will help you to restore functional communication.

Speech-Language Pathologist or
« Agent de correction du langage » ?

An “agent de correction de langage” is a competent therapist who ensures the implementation and application of the intervention plan established by the speech-language pathologist. They can ensure the complete therapeutic follow-up of the client in collaboration with your speech-language pathologist who will supervise, if necessary, any action or decision necessary. In partnership with the child and the parent (s), they will use all tools to achieve the objectives of the speech-language pathologist.

At the clinic, some of our “agents de correction de langage” have graduated in France, but their diploma is not recognized by the “Ordre des Orthophonistes et Audiologistes de Quebec” (OOAQ) for political and technical reasons.

The speech-language pathologist is a member of the Ordre des Orthophonistes et des Audiologistes du Québec (OOAQ)
and must have a license issued by the OOAQ to provide speech-language services.
