Frequently Asked Questions

Who can refer?

If there are any concerns regarding your child’s speech and language development it is better to refer than to wait.

Anyone can refer a child for services from birth to preschool-age, with parents' consent. Families with children who are about to enter kindergarten should contact the school district for service.

Please fill out the referral form. 

Mail the referral form to your local health centre (search the centre's name and your city to access the location listing). Families can also call the various clinics directly to ask questions about services or make referrals over the phone.
