Audiology and speech therapy

Audiology

The Audiology Department provides evaluation, treatment and diagnostic services to external or hospitalized users with hearing impairment, tinnitus, vertigo or others. We also evaluate the hearing of children at birth or of those who have language difficulties or learning disabilities.

Interventions

  • Recommend an hearing aid or assistive listening device, with instructions for use;
  • Evaluate hearing aids to determine if they function properly;
  • Teach the behaviours that favor and improve communication in daily activities;
  • Indicate if a claim for compensation can be made to the CNESST if deafness is caused by work-related activities;
  • Evaluate tinnitus and help manage the difficulties related to it;
  • Work with all school workers and professionals to get the required tools and the tools applicable to their learning environment (e.g.: FM system for auditory processing disorder);
  • Evaluate and treat certain vestibular problems;
  • Detect deafness at birth in order to allow for a quick management of newborns with hearing loss.

Speech therapy

The Speech Therapy Department provides evaluation, treatment and diagnostic services to external or hospitalized users with language difficulties or undiagnosed stuttering, communication issues following a disease or an acquired disorder, voice, articulation, resonance and swallowing disorders, or others.

Interventions

  • Provide information and advice on language development in children;
  • Diagnose delayed speech in your child with a professional evaluation;
  • Offer therapy blocks for different language impairments;
  • Refer to a specialized service for a thorough evaluation, or for access to a specific program.
