Speech-Language Pathology Services
Serving the Hamilton, Ancaster, Haldimand, and Brant areas
Building on over 15 years of professional experience in the Hamilton community, AO SLP Services furthers a longstanding personal commitment to interdisciplinary, functional, and goal-directed intervention. AO SLP Services offers a full-range of Assessment and Intervention Services to support preschool and school-aged children presenting with a variety of developmental Speech and/or Language concerns. AO SLP comes to you -- whether it be your home, daycare, private school, or other meaningful location, your therapist is prepared to provide service in the environments in which your child learns & communicates on a daily basis.
Having worked with countless children over the course of the past 15 years, the importance of family and community in the treatment of a communication disorder is well understood and respected at AO SLP services. Before any pen to paper assessment begins, and throughout the process of intervention, thorough consultation and collaboration will occur. There is no one more experienced in the impact of a communication disorder than the client and family themselves. Bridging the gap between therapy, home, and the community is a skill that is brought to each and every client that I meet.
AO SLP Services currently provides comprehensive Assessment & Intervention in the Hamilton, Haldimand, and Brant areas. Interested in seeing if we service your area? Contact AO SLP Services to inquire about individual needs.

Since completion of my Masters Degree in 2003, I have had the privilege of working primarily in the private sector, providing Assessment & Intervention support to children and adults presenting with a variety of Speech, Language, and Swallowing issues. My background is rich with experience and education in Articulation disorders, Motor Speech and Apraxia, Receptive and Expressive language delay, Early literacy and Reading delay, Social Communication issues, Acquired Brain Injury, Learning Disabilities, Stroke, Progressive Neurogenic Disease, Voice Disorders, Stuttering, Executive Function Disorders, and Feeding & Swallowing issues.
In addition to my work in private practice, I have had the fortunate opportunity to work within the school system- both public and private. This level of practice has allowed me to gain insight into the nature and structure of various regular and special education programs and services. I have also developed a rich network of community service partners.
I have a strong personal commitment to professional development and am continually seeking new and exciting learning opportunities. Wondering about my background with a certain communication issue or disorder? Feel free to contact me to discuss my education and experience, ask questions, or learn more about specific programs that I offer.
