Next Intensive Group Treatment Clinic

…for Stuttering at the University of Ottawa’s Health Services Department

The next intensive group treatment clinic for stuttering will take place July 11th-29th, 2016. The clinic is held at the University of Ottawa Health Sciences building, at 451 Smyth Road, Ottawa, and runs Monday-Friday, 9:00-3:00 p.m. The Clinic will be coordinated by speech pathologist Caroline Bredeson who coordinated the program when it was offered at the Ottawa Hospital’s Rehab Centre.

There is still space for full-time clients in this clinic, as well as for those interested in attending one or two-day refresher sessions. The cost for this latter option is $120 per day, for which you will be billed by the University of Ottawa Health Services. Many of you may have extended health-care benefits which will help to cover the cost. Another option is crowd-source funding: let friends and family know of the work you plan to do on your speech and ask for their help for this vital service, which is not covered under our provincial health-care plan. You may be surprised at how donations add up.

If you are interested in attending all or part of this clinic, please let Caroline know by e-mailing her at bredeson.caroline AT gmail DOT com or by contacting the clinic administrator at physioadmin AT perleyrideauphysio DOT ca or 613-526-7175.
