Welcome to the Niagara Children's Centre Birth to "School Start" Speech-Language Pathology Referral Checklist. This is an online checklist that will help you to determine whether a child who has not yet started school in the Niagara region will benefit from a communication development assessment by a Speech-Language Pathologist, at the Niagara Children's Centre. This takes about 20-30 minutes to complete.
Si vous désirez un service en français, veuillez communiquer avec l'accueil central afin de compléter l’outil de vérification de communication et de faire une demande de service par téléphone.
If you need a LANGUAGE INTERPRETER for another language or other assistance to complete this form, please call the Niagara Children's Centre Intake Coordinators at 905-688-1890, x110.
The Referral Checklist works by helping to identify whether or not a child's communication skills seem to be developing as expected, if behaviours are present that sometimes occur when a child is not developing communication as expected, and if there are concerns with stuttering, resonance, or quality of voice.
