Your dedicated team of
Speech-Language Pathologists and Communicative Disorders staff
All About Communication was founded by Hannah and Christina in 2014 after years of talking about how to provide exceptional speech and language services to Durham Region. Christina, a Speech-Language Pathologist, and Hannah, a Communicative Disorders Assistant, met years before when Hannah provided speech and language therapy to her son and Christina was completing her qualifications as a Speech-Language Pathologist. Fast-forward to today and All About Communication has grown to include a close and collaborative team of Speech-Language Pathologists and Communicative Disorders Assistants who are committed to providing the best speech and language therapy to their families.
