Children’s Speech Language Pathology
Speech-language pathology is the study of speech, language, voice and communication disorders for the purposes of diagnosis and treatment. Approximately 10% of children experience communication disorders.
The Interlake-Eastern RHA pediatric speech-language pathology program believes that communication is a basic function of daily living. As a partner in the Interlake Children’s Therapy Initiative, the program provides comprehensive speech-language pathology services to optimize the communicative health of Interlake preschool children.
Our speech-language pathologists hold masters degrees and are registered with the Manitoba Speech and Hearing Association. Services are client-centered and include intake evaluation, assessment, intervention, consultation, transitioning to school-based speech-language pathology services. Service delivery is via community health offices. Speech language pathologists can also provide community education.
