What is Speech-Language Pathology?
Speech-language pathologists (S-LPs) identify, assess, and treat speech, language, voice, fluency, swallowing and feeding delays and disorders for people of all ages.
A minimum of a Master's degree is required to practice as an S-LP in Canada. All S-LPs practicing within British Columbia must be licensed and are required to report continuing competency credits to their regulatory body.
While S-LPs provide free services within public health, some individuals may choose to seek private services. In British Columbia, there is no coverage for private services through the basic medical plan (MSP), however, some extended medical plans provide coverage.
