Child Reading in the Grass

Welcome to Adventures in Speech Language and Literacy


I provide speech & language therapy as well as Orton Gillingham based tutoring services to Vernon and the surrounding area.  All services are provided by a speech language pathologist who is licensed provincially through the College of Speech and Hearing Health Professionals of BC (CSHBC) and registered nationally through Speech-Language and Audiology Canada (SAC-OAC).

Did you know?

  • 15-20% of the population has Dyslexia (or as it is diagnosed in Canada under a Specific Learning Disability in reading)

  • 95% of people children have the cognitive capacity to learn to read - they just might need something different than what they are currently receiving!

  • Dyslexia can be diagnosed in Kindergarten with 92% accuracy

  • Most schools will not evaluate a child for a learning disability until Grade 3 and beyond

  • It takes 4 times longer to remediate a child in Grade 4 as it does in Grade 1 (read the line above again and see if that is a problem)

  • One study has shown it is possible to improve 1.5+ grade levels in as little as 30 sessions using Lively Letters

  • Reading improvements are seen faster (typically 6 months rather than 3 years) using the Fluency Builders program

Let's figure out your child's learning profile (strengths and weaknesses) to determine the best plan for your child! Because intervention is targeted to your child's needs, using the components best suited for them, you can expect progress and results much faster than a one-size-fits-all program.
