Speech/Language Service Summary (Alberta Health Services)

Below  are the  links to the major Speech and Language related services in Alberta.

If your child is younger than five years old (preschool) then you should contact Central Intake and have an assessment done by the Speech Language Pathologist at your local Public Health.  For any child who is in School (ie Kg, five years and up) then the assessment needs to be initiated by the school, make sure you speak to the school teacher who will initiate services which will utilize services from Alberta Health Services via the School system.  To ensure appropriate services for your school aged child, have the school teacher understand the severity of the condition and ensure the proper Speech/Language and other services are brought to school for your child.  This is initiated by you, the parent, communicating the concerns with the school teacher.
