Speech-Language Pathologists

The Speech Therapy Centres of Canada (STCC) is comprised of a dedicated team of professionals who do more than just help people speak and communicate better – they give hope. STCC professionals help individuals gain self-esteem, make friends and obtain a rewarding job. STCC is in the business of improving the quality of life of both clients and their families. Our therapists work with clients as young as 12 months (e.g. for major swallowing disorders associated with cerebral palsy) and as old as 90 (e.g. for dementia or swallowing issues).

STCC’s Speech and Language Pathologists work together in a collaborative environment. This team-based approach means that clients benefit from the combined knowledge of all of our S-LPs, many of whom focus on a particular area of practice.

These focus areas include:

  • Accent Modification
  • Acquired Brain Injury (ABI)
  • Alternative and Augmentative Communication
  • Aphasia
  • Articulation and Phonological Difficulties
  • Children’s Literacy
  • Developmental Disorders
  • Language Disorders and Difficulties
  • Motor-Speech Disorders (Apraxia of Speech)
  • Neurologically Based Speech Impairments (e.g.: Stroke, Parkinson’s disease)
  • Swallowing Difficulties (Dysphagia)
  • Presentation Skills
  • Social Communication (Pragmatics)
  • Speech Delay and Disorders
  • Stuttering
  • Voice Disorders

Our S-LPs are involved in a number of different activities to promote effective communication and swallowing for the individuals they treat. The methods by which services are provided include but are not limited to:

  • Assessment of communication and swallowing disorders, which may involve screening, identification, evaluation, and diagnosis
  • Intervention for communication and swallowing disorders, which may involve promotion of services, prevention of issues, counseling, treatment, consultation, management, rehabilitation, and education
  • Education and supervision of students and professionals, including supportive personnel who are aligned with the client
  • Consultation with, and referral to, other professionals
  • Research

Our therapists, who are governed by the College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists of Ontario (CASLPO), meet all regulatory requirements for practice, and all have a minimum of Master’s degrees. All of the STCC’s SL-Ps engage in ongoing continuing education and provide clients with the most up-to-date practices. We have therapists with additional training in the following areas:

  • Hanen: It Takes Two to Talk (Early Language)
  • Hanen: More Than Words (ASD)
  • PROMPT (Apraxia of Speech)
  • Lidcombe (Childhood Stuttering)
