Preschool Speech and Language Program

As of October 1, 2022, the Porcupine Health Unit (PHU) will no longer be offering the Speech and Language Program (SLP) and the Infant Hearing Program (IHP). Services offered under both programs will be transferred to the Cochrane Temiskaming Children’s Treatment Center (CT CTC). 

Consent from a legal guardian or parent will be required for the PHU to transfer files to the CT CTC.  As much as possible, parents and guardians are requested to return to the signed consent forms before September 30, 2022, to ensure their child’s file is transferred to CT CTC on October 1st.

If consent is received past September 30, 2022, the Porcupine Health Unit will ensure that the file is transferred to CT CTC at that time.

The Preschool Speech and Language Program provides speech and language services to children from birth to entry into Senior Kindergarten.

We provide services to families throughout the Porcupine Health area. Assessment and a range of treatment services are provided at no cost. No doctor referral is required to access services for your child.
