Event description

Description

Helping Children Overcome Speech Sound Difficulties is hosted by the Ontario Association of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists (OSLA) in partnership with the Department of Speech-Language Pathology at the University of Toronto.


This session will explore the role that speech‐language pathologists play in helping individuals overcome speech sound difficulties. The discussion will include an overview of the types of speech sound difficulties in children, the types of treatments and service‐delivery models available for children, the impact of speech-language pathologists in early intervention, as well as the referral process for school age children.


Featured speakers include: Dr. Pascal van Lieshout, Chair of the University of Toronto’s Department of Speech‐Language Pathology, Margit Pukonen, Interim Executive Director of the Speech & Stuttering Institute, Beverley Benassi, Speech Language Pathologist at the Dufferin Peel Catholic District School Board, Dr. Savannah Cardew, University Health Network & Women’s College Hospital, and Kristi Kwan, school-based speech‐language pathologist.


At the end of the session, there will be time for questions from the audience.


May is Speech and Hearing Month. It is a time when speech‐language pathologists, audiologists and communicative disorder assistants share information about how they ensure that speech, language, swallowing, hearing and balance are recognized as part of total wellness, and work with the public to increase awareness about how important it is to be able to communicate.
