Preschool Speech & Language Program
Register for a speech and language assessment for your child. OHIP is not required.
Preschool Speech and Language Program provides help for children with speech and language concerns at no cost. Our services are available to children from birth to when they start junior kindergarten (JK).
We work with parents and caregivers to improve children’s communication skills. Our main goal is to help every child be the best communicator they can be.
