Christina Healy is a graduate of the 2021 McGill SCSD Speech Language Pathology Program. She is a conditional member of the College of Speech and Hearing Health Professionals of British Columbia (CSHBC) and a member of Speech and Audiology Canada (SAC).
Christina has an extensive background providing services to autistic children using a family centred approach. She provided linguistic, social and behavioural services in a variety of settings including schools, child development centres and in-home. She is motivated to continue learning about autism spectrum disorder and has sought out additional training including Michelle Garcia Winner’s Social Thinking methodology.
During her clinical practicums, Christina led communication treatment with head and neck cancer patients, provided phonological awareness intervention to school aged children and assessed the speech and language of children with behavioural difficulties in a hospital setting. She excelled on an early diagnostic team providing S-LP assessments and intervention to children with apraxia of speech, developmental language disorder, autism spectrum disorder and global developmental delay.
Christina thrives providing speech and language services to the paediatric population. Supporting and coaching parents with early language stimulation strategies is one of her specialties. Creating functional and engaging activities to target speech and language goals is the foundation of Christina’s practice. She believes children learn best when they are having fun, so let the games begin!
Originally from Seattle, Christina is ecstatic to relocate back to the West coast and finally see some mountains! If you catch her outside of work, she is probably paddle boarding, kayaking, hiking or doing yoga with her husband.
