Words by the Sea provides timely assessment and treatment services in a professional clinic setting. While individuals may self-refer, referrals from physicians and other healthcare providers are accepted.

Assessment & Treatment

Words by the Sea provides individualized assessment and treatment services. The length of appointment varies depending on a client’s needs and age. Sessions can be thirty, forty-five or sixty minutes in length.

Assessment and/or treatment may be provided in the following areas:

  • Articulation/Phonology (speech sounds)
  • Infant/Toddler Language Development
  • Receptive and/or Expressive Language
  • Fluency (stuttering)
  • Reading and Writing (Phonological Awareness)
  • Voice
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders
  • Acquired speech and/or language disorders due to stroke, traumatic brain injury (TBI) or
    other illnesses
  • Augmentative & Alternative Communication (AAC)


Words by the Sea provides direct assessment and treatment services in a professional clinic setting. We do, however, recognize this might not be the most suitable location for all clients. As such, we do offer off-site visits (i.e., home, daycare, school, etc.) depending on each client’s needs.

Words by the Sea offers full-day training courses to early childhood educators and teachers. Teacher Talk® is a Hanen Centre® training series based on Learning Language & Loving It – The Hanen Program® for Early Childhood Educators/Teachers.

The Teacher Talk® program provides early childhood educators the opportunity to earn professional development hours while learning how to:
