At SpeechEase Therapy we are committed to providing evidence based practice.
We are able to provide a free 15-minute telephone consultation to discuss your/your loved ones needs and suggest appropriate next steps.
If you proceed to book with SpeechEase, we will complete an assessment of your voice.
This involves a thorough history including medical, social and emotional aspects as well as
an assessment of the function of your voice. The goal of the assessment is as much to
determine any vocal difficulties as it is to understand how your current voice is affecting
Once assessment is completed, we will work with you to determine your priority goals and
an appropriate therapy plan to achieve the goals.
We accept referrals from a variety of sources and also self referrals.
You can also find us at Indigo ENT in Coquitlam where we work closely with the Physician team to determine appropriate therapy plans to meet your needs. You can view the Indigo website at http://www.indigoent.ca/
We are always happy to suggest/refer into public health services if available as our
therapists have knowledge of the public health care system.
