About Us

SLP Endoscopix was founded in 2018. The practice was started to provide expedited voice and swallowing services to patients in Ontario. The need for these services were evident, as patients were waiting for several months or longer, to obtain comprehensive assessment of their swallowing. These patients were left without any clear answers or plan and were often at risk of significant health complications. With voice clients, there was often lag-time between ENT evaluation and initiation of effective voice treatment provided by a Speech-Language Pathologist. For these reasons, SLP Endoscopix was founded, and has worked to provide expedited, efficient and effective evaluation and treatment to these individuals. 

Since its start, SLP Endoscopix has expanded to provide a variety of services to children, adolescents & adults. Our company offers speech, language, communication, executive function and education support to clients, and helps them successfully achieve their goals. Moving forward, our mission is to continue to provide timely and effective services to each client we serve!
