For over 25 years Khan’s therapists have serviced schools across Northern Alberta, including First Nation and Metis Communities.
The First Nation and Metis language and literacy program is a unique intervention program that was developed in 2013 for KG and Grade 1 students, by speech-language pathologists. The purpose of the program was to promote reading readiness by developing narrative and phonological awareness skills in all KG and Grade 1 classrooms in 8 elementary schools in Northern Gateway School Division. The early enrichment program helped students achieve literacy skills. Read more about our program in the Canadian Journal of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology:
We started using virtual services in 2007 to help schools in remote areas receive consistent services. During the COVID pandemic measures, we advanced virtual health services to include consultations for families and screenings for children.
Our therapists provide onsite assessments, create individual and group intervention plans, and help support classroom goals. We also offer a range of professional learning opportunities to help teachers and educational assistants with strategies to enhance a student’s learning and success in the classroom.
