1. Do I require a referral to access services?
A referral is not required.
2. Who can benefit from communication intervention?
Any child who experiences difficulty talking or having his or her needs specifically understood can benefit from behavioural intervention to address these communication difficulties. This may include children with autism, Down's Syndrome, and expressive or receptive communication disorders.
3. How do I get started?
Contact the Communication Clinic at 519-449-1650. We will take some preliminary information and set a date for an intake interview.
4. Does my child need to be present at the intake interview?
No. We recommend that parents and caregivers attend without their child.
5. What ages do you serve?
We provide evidence-based communication intervention for children ages 2 through 15.
6. Will my child talk?
We do know that non-verbal children can be taught to communicate more effectively. Moreover, the use of augmentative systems does not inhibit learning speech. READ MORE
