This was an extremely exciting month for Semiahmoo Speech Services as we got our first TV feature on Global News! We are so thrilled to be able to show a snippet of the work we do with children. Our friend Patrick, who is also featured in the video, is an absolute superstar!


Variety Week 2018: Young boy with Speech Apraxia finds his voice thanks to Variety!
Patrick was born with Goldenhar Syndrome, a rare disorder that typically involves the incomplete development of the ear, nose and jaw. In addition to his challenges with Goldenhar Syndrome, Patrick also struggles with speech apraxia. Variety has provided Patrick with weekly speech and language sessions and it’s helping Patrick discover his voice.

To our valued clients:

The College of Speech and Hearing Health Professionals of BC (CSHBC) is closely monitoring the rapidly evolving developments with the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) pandemic. Based on the latest developments in British Columbia, and effective March 19, 2020 CSHBC strongly recommends that all Speech-Language Pathologists (RSLPs)  who work in private practice suspend in-person elective and non-essential services.

CSHBC recommends that providers follow this protocol for approximately two weeks, from March 19, 2020 until April 1, 2020, at which time they should re-evaluate the situation.

At SSS, we want to do our part in reducing the spread of this nasty virus. As of today, we have closed our doors for direct service. We will consider offering “virtual care” when and where appropriate and according to client ability and needs.

Thank you for your support and understanding during this challenging time.  We will ALL miss our families and look forward to regular services returning to soon🌹
