how we support you
Speech Language Pathologists address the needs of those who exhibit difficulties with cognitive functions (attention, memory, problem-solving, etc.), receptive and expressive language needs, literacy, social interaction, including social thinking deficits, and social anxiety, voice and fluency problems, and difficulties with speech production. We provide a full range of services for all age groups.
Whether you are suffering from brain injury and have related communication needs, have a child with receptive and expressive impairments, have difficulties with literacy, are looking to improve your speech production, want to improve your quality of life by managing social anxiety, or want to enhance your career advancement through improved communication, we can help.
At Ambleside Speech we offer individualized assessment and treatment services that are designed to help communicate effectively and more confidently by overcoming challenges, through engaging and positive experiences.
We offer INDIVIDUAL, GROUP and ONLINE TELEHEALTH services.
Please note that due to the covid-19 pandemic, we have moved all our appointments to online sessions (telepractice).
What is TELEPRACTICE?
Speech Language and Audiology Canada defines "Telepractice” as the use of technology to deliver audiology and speech–language pathology services at a distance. Telepractice may involve “live” or “store-and-forward” service. Live or real time service may include but is not limited to telephone, or videoconferencing.
- During this time of social distancing, telepractice is an effective way of maintaining progress and keep from causing major regressions in the learning by providing continued service.
- As we will be working with clients along with their parents/caregivers, it will help with more success in the client’s natural environment.
- We can continue to support groups online via videoconferencing, enabling clients to continue to practice even when they are not in the clinic.
Please be advised that telepractice is not a suitable option for all clients. Whether telepractice is appropriate or not will be determined on a case-by-case basis by the therapist.
All appointments for existing and new clients will be conducted via online sessions. For most, videoconferencing sessions are every bit as effective as in-person sessions. Our cancellation policy remains the same. Please contact us if you are interested in setting up virtual sessions. We will provide all the information you need to get started.
