A Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) works with children and youth who are having difficulties with their speech, language, social or feeding.

This can look like practicing different sounds or helping build up their words. The SLP works closely with you and your child to help expand your child’s communication using everyday activities. Communication comes in multiple forms including spoken words, gestures, facial expression or using technology such as an Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) device.

SLP’s also work on social communication such as interacting and playing with peers and flexible thinking. And let’s not forget, an SLP can also help with swallowing and feed concerns.

 Pediatric SLPs work with clients who have a wide range of communication difficulties, such as: 

  • Language delays
  • Stuttering
  • Non-verbal communication and using alternative communication devices to talk.
  • Speech sound disorders (“speech impediments”)
  • Communication difficulties related to Autism.
  • Communication difficulties related to hearing loss.
  • Social communication
  • Feeding and Swallowing
  • And so much more!


An SLP can assess a child’s speech, language, and social skill abilities to help determine appropriate goals. This can be done through formal assessments, observations, play groups, direct therapy sessions, and family meetings.  Often SLPs will work on a team with Occupational Therapist (OT) Physiotherapists (PT), and other support workers.
