Hi I'm Grace.
Chatty Therapy was established out of my desire to help families feel confident in knowing how to help their loved-ones. Supporting a loved-one who has speech, language and feeding difficulties can be stressful and overwhelming. It can be hard to know what the next steps are, or how to help our loved-ones improve. Our team of qualified speech-language pathologists are here to help!
Our goal at Chatty Therapy is to be a practice with passionate speech-language pathologists who fully tailor their support to help clients meet their therapeutic goals. We want our clients to be successful in all the various environments they might experience and all the opportunities they have for participation.
I believe that therapy is most effective when it incorporates the client's interests and matches the skills they need in their daily life. We collaborate with families and their community networks to determine appropriate goals, treatments, home practice activities, and follow-up options. We value research, and we strive to provide the most current research-based practices.
I graduated from the University of Alberta with a Masters of Science in Speech Language Pathology. My experience includes working with families of infants to school-age children with speech and language difficulties, children with autism and adults with aphasia. I have also completed a thesis on "Pairing reading treatment with transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) for adults with aphasia".
