West Coast Speech Language Pathology is a private practice providing a wide spectrum of speech and language pathology services to all ages. In particular, we have extensive experience in supporting children with autism utilizing the latest ground-breaking techniques and therapy available today.
Meet our team of Speech and Language Pathologists. Our SLPs are members of the College of Speech and Hearing Health Professionals of British Columbia (CSHHPBC).
Our comprehensive development strategies take a cohesive approach to expanding your child's communication and interaction with the world around them.
During this initial consultation, we will review your child's' current levels of communication and your goals for their ongoing engagement with their environment.
My children have been seeing Janine and her colleagues for the last 10 years. Speech Language Pathology is based on the developmental approach and it gives me a different perspective than ABA. Personally I believe using a multi-disciplinary approach including ABA, SLP and OT has been helping my children the most. Janine and her staff have been willing to listen to me, explaining to me their approach, teaching me on what to do and how to do it at home, and changing the focus area as we go along depending on my children's needs, school teacher requests and urgency of the matters. They also provide recommendation to my children's IEP meetings. I am a happy mother and I recommend them.
We have been using services at WCSLP for our son for more than 10 years. He has worked with a few different therapists but primarily with Janine Baker during this time. He has attended individual sessions and social group sessions. All the therapists have been patient, identified areas to improve, encouraged new behaviors and strategies. They have also taught him how to engage and interact with peers. We have seen improvements in his social skills and most importantly - he is able to maintain an ongoing conversation with typical kids. We highly recommend WCSLP.
We have been thrilled with the progress our kiddos have made with their social skills through group sessions at West Coast Speech Language Pathology. Over the past 3 years our kids explored topics like hidden social rules/expectations , how to make small talk, what is a social fake and how to answer questions during an interview. Both kids are way more confident in new social settings and had a smooth transition from elementary school to high school, thanks to the folks at West Coast Speech Language Pathology.
They get the thumbs up from the Hamilton Family!!
