DC Kids Speech and Language Clinic

The Communicative Disorder Assistant (CDA) program at Durham College will be offering speech and language clinics for children throughout the year.

The clinic will offer a fun, exciting and effective intervention for children with speech and/or language delays. Children have the opportunity to work with one-on-one assistance to improve speech, fluency, phonological awareness, reading, expressive/receptive or social communication-related challenges.

A registered Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) offers an assessment of each child during the first week to ensure your child has a therapy plan fit for them. Following the assessments, children receive weekly 30 minute treatment sessions with the CDA students under the direct supervision of the SLP to implement the treatment plan in the progressing weeks.

Services are provided free of charge, with a one-time registration fee of $40. Payment is accepted at the time of attendance only and is not required with the intake form. Payment is completed via PayPal through the link below via debit or credit card. Please note a PayPal account is not needed.
