Manon enjoys improving oral language skills in young children. She favours early intervention for toddlers, seeing them before their second birthday if the parents are worried. She loves taking up challenges such as connecting with a very shy child or helping a toddler to say his first words. She also has lots of fun with the chatterboxes. She is particularly interested in multilinguism. She can assess and do therapy in English and French. She can also do speech/language assessments with the help of an interpreter when finding a speech/language pathologist speaking the child’s first language is difficult. Her main goal is to always offer the best services to her clients and their families.
After completion of her Master of Speech and Language Pathology at Université de Montréal, Manon has had the privilege to practice in California working with children presenting speech/language disorders or difficulties, developmental language disorders (DLD), speech sound disorders (SSD), autism spectrum disorders (ASD), intellectual disabilities, various syndromes as well as non-verbal communication. Afterwards, she worked in a rehabilitation center (neurotrauma) with children and teenagers who had sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI) or suffered a stroke. Many of them had an attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). She then started working in private practice on the South Shore of Montreal in 2008. During the following years, she gained experience with children presenting affective disorders and developped a particular interest for bilingual and multilingual children. In 2020, she answered the call during the COVID 19 pandemic and worked as an "aide de service"- SLP in a long-term care center. During the 2020-21 school year, she worked as a school-based SLP. The Fall 2021 marks the begining of a new adventure: the opening of Éclore Speech Clinic!
