about bespoke speech

Where Parents and Their Littles Are Seen, Heard & Understood

We care about your child, share the goals you have for them, and are here to support you both—in a way that fits your family’s life

We are thrilled to welcome you in to our new clinic in the St. Clair West community. It was intentionally designed to be a warm and inviting place where all parents and children can feel "at home" and thrive.

Parent to Parent, We Understand.

And because we understand, we can help.

We see a world where every child is understood and can communicate at their level, to their fullest potential, whatever that may be. And, where parents are confidently equipped with an understanding of how to support their children, so they can be the reason their child achieves their goals.

Our Vision

Our Mission

We’re on a mission to help children play and communicate to their fullest potential by including their families in the process. With understanding and a “been there” communication style, we reduce parents’ fears and let them know they’re never alone on their child’s path to communication.

Read My Bio

I received my Masters in Health Science in Speech-Language Pathology from the University of Toronto.  My career started within the public preschool speech and language program through the Hanen Centre in Toronto.   In 2017, I ventured out on my own and established Bespoke Speech and developed our signature baby program, Babbling Babies®.  I continue to create and add group programs and e-courses to best equip parents and give them confidence in helping their child's communication skills.
 
My speech therapy niche and absolute passions are Late Talking Toddlers and motor speech difficulties.   I've always excelled at maintaining open communication with families and believe that parent participation is a key component to building strong language and play skills in the early years. I use a tailored approach to both child and caregiver to ensure positive communication change and success for our families.  

I owe my speech therapy success to my own two children.  They were born 1 ½ years apart and are the best of friends. Becoming their mom has infinitely helped me hone my craft and most importantly my compassion for our little clients and their families.

I have an undergraduate degree in Sociology from the University of Toronto and my Communicative Disorder Assistant (CDA) certificate from Durham College. For over 16 years, I worked in the public preschool speech and language program through the Hanen Centre and Surrey Place Centre.  Since September 2023, I am in charge of keeping our beautiful new space and the entire team running smoothly as Bespoke's Clinical Coordinator.

Rebecca Drory and I have been working together since the start of our careers.  We have fostered a strong professional collaboration which has also developed into a close personal friendship! I am known as the "glue" that keeps it all together at Bespoke Speech.

I have a passion for parent training through a play-based approach focusing on Late Talking Toddlers, Motor Speech Difficulties, and Gestalt Language Processors.  It is rewarding and fulfilling to develop a young child’s individual strengths and needs by empowering their parents’ knowledge. 

I also love to work with school-aged clients with their speech sounds while encouraging their own self confidence and feelings of success both in and out of the therapy room. I am proud to be in charge of Bespoke Speech's "After School" speech sound therapy sessions.

I received my Masters of Clinical Science in Speech-Language Pathology from Western University. My career experience includes working in private practice with toddlers, preschoolers and school-aged children and as a school-based SLP.  When I am not facilitating the Babbling Babies program I work on the Autism Team at the Toronto District School Board (TDSB).Working in a collaborative professional team setting allows me to provide effective and appropriate classroom-based strategies while supporting and encouraging neuro-diverse children to reach their communication goals. 

As an SLP mom to three amazing children, I understand the importance of early language development and how interactive play can foster communication.  I enjoy sharing my knowledge and spending time getting to know our Babbling Babies’ families.

Read My Bio

I received my Masters of Health Science in Speech-Language Pathology from the University of Toronto. I have over 20 years’ experience working in the private sector as well as in the public sector with the public preschool speech and language program in the GTA.  Several years ago, I took on a management position for a speech and language team, which was an exciting new opportunity in my career. Still, I missed my time spent with Little Ones and their parents, so I’m thrilled to be part of the Bespoke team where I can continue to support families directly. 

I have extensive experience working with children from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds to support and develop their language, social communication, play, literacy and speech production skills. 

I’m the proud mom of two teenaged daughters. Running a busy household helped me gain perspective on the necessity and importance of incorporating language learning into everyday moments and daily routines. I value including and empowering parents to support the growth of their children’s communication skills.
