Lizette has extensive experience working with preschool children and school-aged students with a variety of developmental disabilities, genetic syndromes and speech and language disorders. Lizette’s main areas of clinical interest include early language delay, articulation, working on social communication with children with autism spectrum disorder as well as working with clients who use Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC).

Lizette strongly values working together with families, clients and other professionals to ensure goals and activities are functional and meaningful. Lizette brings additional skills and insights from her previous experiences as a student support worker/educational assistant in the schools and as a behaviour interventionist to provide a well-rounded approach to speech therapy.
