Speech and Language Services

The speech and language team supports the prevention, identification, assessment, treatment, and the (re)habilitation of speech, language and swallowing/feeding disorders.

Speech disorders include difficulty with production of speech sounds, stuttering (or fluency) and voice/resonance disorders.

Language disorders can affect the ability to understand others and/or express thoughts, ideas and feelings at a level consistent with developmental expectations.

Speech and language services may include:

  • Home programming 
  • Consultation to caregivers, professionals and supportive personnel who interact with the child 
  • Group or individual therapy combined with parent education and coaching 

Intervention focuses on skill development as well as on creating environments that promote optimal communication.

Referral Criteria

  • Children from birth to August 31 of junior kindergarten (JK) year with speech and/or language problems
  • Referrals for SLP only services will be accepted up to August 31 of the year they are eligible to enter junior kindergarten (JK). If a child previously received speech and language services at ErinoakKids or any Ontario PSL program and was discharged, he/she can be re-referred up to April 1 of his/her JK year
