Speech and language development is a very important part of intellectual, social and emotional development in children. Problems with communication development in preschool children are surprisingly common. One out of every ten preschool children experiences some type of speech and/or language delay.

The main goal of the Preschool Speech and Language Program is to ensure that every child in Toronto achieves their optimal communication potential. Children are eligible to receive all preschool speech and language program services from birth until they reach their junior kindergarten year.
