Jana O’Connor is a Registered Speech-Language Pathologist with Say It SLP Services. Providing 100% online speech and language therapy services via telepractice, Jana aims to meet the communication needs of her clients with creativity, flexibility, and fun!
Why private speech and language therapy?
Jana believes strongly in early intervention when any communication challenges emerge. Public health services are more strained than ever before with growing wait lists that are negatively impacting families. Private speech therapy can be the answer for many families who do not wish to wait a year or more to address their child's communication challenges. Supporting children early is so important to meet their needs, avoid unnecessary frustration, and build connection.
Why choose online therapy?
Telepractice (also known as telehealth) has become ubiquitous since the Covid-19 pandemic began and many services moved online. Many of us are now comfortable using Zoom and similar platforms to meet and connect with friends, family, and health care providers. With so many digital resources and games available, speech and language therapy can be fun and engaging delivered through an online platform. Contact Jana to see if online speech and language services are right for you.
