Speech Language Pathology

Meridian Rehab’s team of Speech Therapists offer speech therapy in Vernon, Kelowna and Kamloops and work with both children and adults.

Speech Language Pathologists (SLPs) are experts in communication and swallowing. SLPs have in-depth knowledge on the development and rehabilitation of speech and language as well as swallowing, voice, fluency (stuttering), resonance (nasality), cognitive communication and social communication. Communication delays/disorders and swallowing disorders can be related to developmental delays, neurogenic disease, brain injury or stroke. SLPs are rehabilitation professionals who help clients maximize their ability to communicate effectively and swallow safely in any environment.
