Welcome to

LET'S TOK SPEECH THERAPY

Neurodiversity-Affirming Speech Therapy, Coaching, & Education

Let's Tok Speech Therapy offers support to families to help little ones express themselves with confidence!

We believe that children learn best through play, so our sessions are uniquely designed with each child's interests, goals, and sensory needs in mind.

 

We have in-person spots available in North York (and some surrounding areas) for children needing support at home, daycare, or private school. Online speech therapy services are also available to families across Ontario, providing a more convenient option to busy families.

THERAPY & COACHING SERVICES

We focus on strengths & build on what your child can already do.

Virtual and in-home therapy options are convenient and accessible.

We also offer 12-week parent courses and workshops!

PARENT COACHING

We are passionate about providing families with strategies and tools to help their little ones express themselves. Our 12-week parent coaching programs get parents involved every step of the way and empower them to use the same methods seen in therapy.

SOCIAL COMMUNICATION / AUTISM

We focus on improving an autistic child’s quality of life through a strengths-based lens while honouring their sensory needs and interests. Rather than moulding them to fit "normal" standards as typically seen in ABA practices, we ensure that autistic children feel accepted and loved, irrespective of their differences.

OROFACIAL MYOFUNCTIONAL THERAPY

In myofunctional therapy, children are guided to complete exercises that improve the strength, coordination, and positioning of their mouth and throat muscles. By treating the root cause of each child's speech, breathing,  sleep, and feeding challenges, we are able to improve their quality of life.
