SHHA is proud to be part of smallTALK, the Preschool Speech Language Program serving families in Huron and Perth counties.
smallTALK was created to ensure that all children (from birth to the beginning of Senior Kindergarten) living in Huron and Perth counties are given the best chance of reaching their full speech, language and communication potential. smallTALK is part of a province wide, government initiative designed to bring together new and existing resources to ensure the delivery of a comprehensive preschool speech and language program. smallTALK focuses on prevention, early identification of problems and broadening the methods of treatment provided by Speech Language Pathologists.
