Meet our Clinical Director

Sharon Burgess
Sharon Burgess

Clinic Director and Owner 
Speech-Language Pathologist

M.H.Sc., S-LP, Reg. CASLPO

Sharon completed her Master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology at the University of Ottawa in 2003 where she currently teaches Communication Disorders in Special Populations and Assistive Technologies to Support Reading and Writing. She also teaches students in the speech-language pathology program at l’IHEPS, a Morroccan University. Over the years, she has had the opportunity and privilege of offering a variety of training courses and workshops related to autism spectrum disorders, intellectual disabilities, and written language. She also offers a wide variety of workshops geared towards parents, educators and clinicians, in French and in English. 

 

She has dedicated most of her career to working with children, adolescents and adults on the autism spectrum, initially as a behavioral therapist, and for the last 20 years, as a speech-language pathologist.

 

When her two youngest daughters were diagnosed with language-based learning difficulties (dyslexia, dysorthographia), she decided to deepen her knowledge in order to better support them. Work related to these difficulties has now become an area of practice she truly enjoys!

 

Sharon enjoys spending time with her four children and husband, travelling and keeping active by playing a variety of sports.
