Narrative

The speech-language pathologists in the Feeding and Swallowing Program are all fully qualified and licensed speech-language pathologists (CCC-SLP). They are also highly trained and experienced in managing children with feeding and swallowing difficulties, and apply the principles of evidence-based practice. We strongly believe in the principles of family-centered care, and pride ourselves on our thorough assessment process and innovative approaches to intervention.

Our Speech-language pathologists are trained in head and neck anatomy, physiology, and neurology, and specialize in the management of communication and swallowing impairments and dysfunction.They regularly present at national and international scientific conferences, have numerous publications in this area, and run training workshops for other health professionals working in the field of pediatric feeding and swallowing difficulties
