Client or Parent of Client

 

At Vancouver Speech Therapy we highly value collaboration! Whether you are the client or the parent of the client your input is necessary for progress. As the parent you know your child best so your goals are our priorities. Your input is valuable. At the end of every session whether it’s in home or online we take about 5 minutes to debrief you, the parent on what was done, progress and ideas for next session. It is important for us at Vancouver Speech Therapy to ensure you are informed about your child’s progress regularly and feel like you are apart of the therapeutic process.

Aman Sahnan 

Registered Speech and Language Pathologist

Hi, my name is Aman Sahnan! I  graduated from the University of Alberta with my Masters in Speech Language Pathology in 2018. I have experience working in public and private settings. I started working with the Edmonton Catholic School District where I tended to preschool and kinder aged children with a range of speech/language and developmental disorders. I also worked at a private agency in Burnaby, where I began my work with a wider age range from preschool to school aged children.  I am especially motivated to support non-verbal children find alternative means to communicate.

I also enjoy working with Adults, specifically on accent reduction. Having been brought up with a mom who experienced an accent I understand the obstacles some of us face when adjusting to a new country and learning a new language. 

Certifications: 

  • Hanen: Learning Language and Loving It
  • Accent Reduction Teacher Training through “Speech and Voice Global Enterprises”
  • Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS)

Larissa Ruiz

Speech Language Pathology Assistant

 

I received my Bachelors degree in Speech Sciences from the University of British Columbia in 2021. I began my SLPA career at the ALL Group, where I worked with young adults with a shared history of developmental delays associated with speech, language, and literacy difficulties. I then joined Vancouver Language Therapy for Kids, working with children aged 4-10 years old with special educational needs. I have special interests in bilingualisms and early literary in both typically-developing children and those on the autism spectrum. I want to work towards empowering children to learn two languages simultaneously and to support early literacy. 

Delaney Smallridge

Speech and Language Pathology Assistant

 

Hi my name is Delaney Smallridge. I am a fourth-year university student at UBC. I became interested in the field of speech-language pathology after working with a young boy with autism for many years. He needs, and continues to need, support to further develop his communication skills. The growth I have seen over the years while working with him has been a pleasure to watch and made me want to pursue a career in supporting children with speech and communication disorders. When I finish my degree, I hope to get a master’s degree in speech-language pathology.
