Preschool Speech & Language Program

Children’s Centre Thunder Bay is the lead agency in the District of Thunder Bay for the Preschool Speech and Language Program. This program provides services with funding from the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services (MCCSS) at no additional cost to families.


This program delivers speech and language services for preschool children and their families, from birth to entry into Senior Kindergarten. Speech Language Pathologists and Communicative Disorders Assistants provide assessment and therapy to support children with their communication development in a variety of community settings. Therapy is geared towards a child’s individual needs and goals, and family involvement is encouraged. Children’s Centre Thunder Bay works with families to answer questions, as well as to provide strategies to practice at home.
