Kayla Dickie, MClSc, R.SLP
Kayla originates from Upper Stewiacke, Nova Scotia, and has been slowly moving west ever since! Kayla completed her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at Dalhousie University, before achieving her Master of Clinical Science in Speech Language Pathology at University of Western Ontario. With a strong interest in Childhood Apraxia, Kayla is excited to work with a diverse group of clients and disorder areas, and to continue learning something new everyday along the way.
Kayla loves working with children on the spectrum and early intervention is a favourite part of her caseload. Kayla likes to take a coaching approach to help families build routines that are specific to their child’s learning and communication style.
In her downtime, Kayla loves to ski, play ultimate frisbee, water color, or spend time with her adorable senior cat!
