Providing Speech & Language Services To The Southern Gulf Islands

About Us

Thyra and her fiancé, Ryan, live on Salt Spring Island where Thyra serves as the speech language pathologist for the Gulf Islands School District. Previously, she has worked as a speech language pathologist both at the Down Syndrome Resource Foundation and the Burnaby School District, where she gained experience working with children and adults with various developmental disabilities and acquired conditions. Thyra strongly believes in collaborating with clients and their families to establish and work toward meaningful goals that improve quality of life, both in the short term and in years to come.

Everyone deserves to be heard. We are here to help clients learn to communicate in a way that others can understand.
