Our Mission

The mandate of The Speech & Stuttering Institute is three-fold: To provide clinical service, to educate and train professionals throughout the province, and to engage in cutting edge research to unearth the root causes of speech related challenges in order to find the most effective treatment methods.  Our speech therapy programs are made possible through the generosity of donors as well as client fees

What Makes Us Different?

We have been recognized by the Ontario government as a “Centre of Training and Development” as a result of the Institute’s many years of conducting research to inform our evidence-based speech and stuttering therapy programs.  This designation means that the Government is relying on our Institute to help create speech and stuttering guidelines and train speech language pathologists in Toronto and across the Province of Ontario.

What does that mean for you? You have the opportunity to receive speech therapy from the professionals who are teaching SLPs throughout Ontario.

Our Team

All of our Speech-Language Pathologists are Registered with the College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists of Ontario (CASLPO).  Many of our clinicians offer training workshops to practicing clinicians in the areas of motor speech disorders and stuttering.

Our speech clinicians are trained in the PROMPT system (Prompts for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets), which has been found to be an effective tool for the treatment of motor speech disorders.  Several clinicians are also Hanen Certified.

Our stuttering clinicians are trained in the Fluency Plus Program, the Lidcombe Program and Palin Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (all evidence-based, internationally recognized treatment programs for stuttering).
