London-Elgin Speech & Language Services (LESLS) is a private practice with two locations: Downton St. Thomas and Hyde Park, London, Ontario. We offer fee-for-service speech, language, reading, and global communication assessment and treatment for children aged 1 to 18 years. In addition, LESLS offers speech, language, cognitive communication and swallowing assessment and treatment for adults with difficulties in these areas. Clients have the choice to receive service at the clinic, in their homes, or at their day care or school (private schools only, as public schools do not allow private practitioners to provide services on premises). Additional costs are associated with home or school visits. We are an independent HCAI facility, and therefore can bill auto insurance companies directly for services provided to clients who have been injured in an auto accident.
Our main clinic is located in the west end of St. Thomas, at 426 Talbot St., and just 15 minutes south of London. It houses a spacious waiting room and two clinic rooms. In addition, the brightly lit space encourages children of all ages participate at their fullest potential and parents to be comfortable observing and/or participating in each session.
Our London clinic is the largest of the 3 clinics of LESLS and 4 clinic rooms, a waiting area and an accessible washroom. It located in the Hyde Park area of the city serves as the site for speech and language camps in the summer, during Christmas break, and during March break. The largest clinic rooms are each decorated with a superhero theme and one room serves as a “low stimulation” room for clients who are otherwise easily or overly stimulated by wall decorations.
