Language Express Services Are Still Available!
All Language Express services are currently being provided via telepractice. If you are already a Language Express client, your service provider is available to provide support by telephone, email, or secure online video appointments. We encourage you to call your service provider or the Language Express office for more information. Click here for important information about online visits. There are lots of things you can be doing at home to help your child make progress on speech and language goals.

 

If you are not a client yet but would like to make a referral or get more information, please call our central office at 1-888-503-8885 or (613) 283-2742. Leave a message and someone will call you back. We look forward to speaking with you.

Language Express Tip of the Week

Be a Good Model. Give clear examples, but don't tell your child what to say.

  • Repeat what she says correctly. If she says, “My boon falled down!” you could say, “Your spoon fell down. Oops! Let's get a clean one.” Don't tell her to say it again. If you say, “Don't say ‘boon,’ say ‘spoon’,” you are telling her that there is something wrong with the way she talks.
  • Talk to your child. Explain what you are doing. Name different things around you.
  • Listen to your child. Encourage your child to describe things and to make up stories.
