Speech and Language Clinic

Offering speech and language services in both French and English, our clinic allows students to apply their clinical skills in Canada’s two official languages.

Laurentian University’s Speech and Language Clinic offers quality rehabilitative services to people of all ages with
communication and swallowing disorders living in Northern Ontario, while also providing students with clinical
activities that allow them to bridge the gap between theory and practice. The goal of our clinic is to educate and
shape future professionals while offering assessment and intervention services to the Northern Ontario
Community.

 

SUPERVISION

Students taking part in these clinical activities are supervised at all times by registered Speech Language Pathologists who are members in good standing of the College of Audiologists and Speech Language Pathologists of Ontario (CASLPO). (https://caslpo.com/)
