Speech Therapy Terms - It Can Get Confusing!

Searching speech therapy services in french

If you're a parent looking for speech therapy services for you child, it can be confusing when it comes to looking for information and services since a lot of different terms are used in the field, such as speech-language pathology, speech-language pathologist, SLP, clinician, speech therapist, play-based therapy, language therapy, and so on.

To add salt to the wound, if you live in a city like Ottawa, where you may be looking for services in French, then it may seem like double the work! But fun fact, in French, we make it a bit easier by using two terms, one for the clinician's title, "orthophoniste" and one for the services "orthophonie". Unless you are from Europe, where they use the terms "logopède" for the clinician and "logopédie" for the services.
