Summerspeak provides intensive therapy programs in Metro Vancouver and on Vancouver Island for people who stutter and their families.
Summerspeak is a small, friendly, unique, family oriented program held in the summer by two warm caring speech-language pathologists who have specialized in stuttering therapy for more than 25 years. Small groups ensure maximum progress.
Summerspeak uses an eclectic approach incorporating best practices in fluency therapy, from the highly regarded Australian Lidcombe and Camperdown programs to the development of meta-cognitive skills and mindfulness. Parents learn to provide positive and specific feedback and to support their child as they move forward in developing fluent speech patterns.
Summerspeak’s principal speech-language pathologists, Sandra Collins and Carol Westdal, are Registrants of CSHHPBC (College of Speech and Hearing Health Professionals of British Columbia) and members of SAC and BCASLPA.
