SpeakAble Speech and Language has now expanded to Montreal!
Tamara Paull is a registered speech language pathologist and the founder of SpeakAble. She grew up in Pierrefonds, QC, and completed her Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology at the University of British Columbia. Tamara moved to Toronto in 2012 to build up her practice which grew into a team of licensed speech-language pathologists and support personnel. She recently moved back home to Montreal and brought SpeakAble down the 401 with her (she still manages the Toronto office remotely)!
Tamara’s passion lies in the pediatric world. Her curiosity in the profession peaked right after high school, when she worked as an ABA therapist with children with autism. Supporting children with autism spectrum disorder, and their families, continues to be her area of interest and specialty as a speech-language pathologist. The clinicians at SpeakAble evaluate and treat children of all ages who present with a wide range of difficulties in the areas of emerging language, articulation, phonology, oral motor skills, fluency, developmental disorders, pragmatics and expressive and receptive language.
SpeakAble provides in-home evaluation and treatment sessions. They recognize that life can be chaotic, leaving us with little valuable family time, let alone time to drive to a speech therapist’s office. Additionally, rapport is quickly built between a clinician and a child when in a comfortable, quiet home environment. A trusting and comfortable relationship can propel the rate of progress. Home visits are beneficial for more reasons than convenience and comfort. They also allow parents and caregivers to be actively involved and participate in the sessions in a natural, non-contrived environment.
If you or someone you know has concerns regarding your child’s speech and/or language, do not hesitate to call SpeakAble for a free phone consultation. A licenced speech-language pathologist will discuss your concerns and determine if an evaluation is recommended at this time.
