Here are some ideas about how to help yourself, or someone else, with a communication difficulty.

Funding

Speech-language pathologists who work in the private sector provide services on a fee for service basis. Families or individuals will be asked to pay for these services or to authorize the speech-language pathologists to bill a funding source.

Please note: BC’s basic Medical Services Plan does not cover the cost of private speech, language, or swallowing services.
