Speech Language Pathology
Speech language pathologists are members of the healthcare team and provide adult in-patients with communication and swallowing assessment and treatment services.
The speech language pathologists in the York Region Preschool Speech and Language Program assess speech and language function in children and provide treatment and prevention of speech language dysfunctions or disorders in order to develop, maintain, or augment oral motor or communicative skills. Intensive individual group therapy and parent education classes are provided.
Out-patient programs can be accessed through a central registry. Parents, physicians, and healthcare professionals can call 1-800-703-KIDS (5437) or 905-830-9487 if they are residents of Newmarket or Georgina. Referrals can be faxed to 905-762-2099.
