Thank you for checking out my blog. My name is Elissa, and I am a practicing speech-language pathologist. I am also a mother to three beautiful sons. I work at a school for children with developmental delays during the week, but in my spare time I maintain a thriving (albeit small) private practice where I see a pretty diverse caseload. I am certified by OOAQ (the Quebec order of speech language pathologists and audiologists) and I am an international ASHA affiliate (www.asha.org). I am also certified in two Hanen programs, It Takes Two To Talk and Target Word (both addressing language delay in a parent coaching framework)
In my private practice, I split my time between coaching families on how to integrate therapy goals into daily life, and working with adult clients who have concerns including:
- accent modification
- voice feminization or masculinization (also known as gender affirming voice)
- cognitive-linguistic therapy for support after stroke, brain injury or in the early phases of neurodegenerative disease.
I'll be posting my insights, sharing resources, and hopefully creating a rich and robust blog of information that can serve anyone who visits my little home on the web.
