As part of the Toronto Preschool Speech and Language Services’ new model, the Centre will provide this program in the east service area of the City of Toronto. TPSLS offers the following services to children under the age of 5: assessment; consultation to parents and community-based children’s programs; parent training and information sessions; consultation and training for caregivers and other professionals; group and individual speech therapy; and referral to a wide range of child and family services in the community.
Beginning in January 2015, the Centre will work in partnership with Toronto Public Health (the lead agency), and 4 other service providers: Adventure Place, The Macaulay Child Development Centre, The George Hull Centre, and Hanen Centre.
The program strives to provide communication skill development to preschool children. The mission of the Toronto Preschool Speech and Language program is to provide exemplary identification and intervention services, responsive to cultural and linguistic diversity, in partnership with community agencies, to enable all preschool children in Toronto to reach their highest communication potential.
