The Speech, Voice and Language Clinic serves children and adults with communication needs. Our clients range from toddlers, preschoolers, school age children, teenagers and adults, to singers, actors, business executives and geriatric individuals. All of our therapists are registered with CASLPO, and the ongoing education of our therapists well exceeds provincial and national standards.

We provide a highly personalized service in attractive and comfortable surroundings. Our clinic is well-equipped with comprehensive clinical resources. We are conveniently located at BELL MEWS PLAZA in Bells Corners, at 2039 Robertson Road, Suite 256, between Moodie Drive and Richmond Road in Nepean.

Parking is free and plentiful. There are two handicap parking spots in the front of Bell Mews, and there are four at the back of the building on the west side. We are wheel chair accessible. There are automatic handicapped doors throughout the building.

Our fees are well below recommended rates by the Ontario Association of Speech Language Pathologists and Audiologists. Some coverage may be available through clients’ employment insurance plans.
