Early-Speech Language Enhancement (E-SLE) Program

Why?

Currently there is little to no programming available for children with identified speech delays under the age of 2.6 years or for children awaiting to begin a PUF program in September. The E-SLE Program was created to address a ‘gap’ in services available in Calgary for children who have speech and/or language delays but are too young to be enrolled in our Early Childhood Services (ECS) afternoon program or don’t currently qualify for funded programming.

What?

The E-SLE Program will be led by a Speech-Language Pathologist, with enhancements of music therapy and occupational therapy support.

Program Overview:

  • The E-SLE Program will run twice weekly, out of the South Pacekids’ facility (23 Sunpark Drive SE, Calgary, AB T2X 3V1)
  • The E-SLE Program will be offered across three semesters in the 2018/2019 school year
