Renée Laliberté is the founder of SpeechyBird. She is a registered speech-language pathologist with The College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists of Ontario (CASLPO) and a member of Speech-Language and Audiology Canada (SAC).  She has extensive experience working in the public health and education sectors, including nine years in preschool speech and language services and eight years in school boards, with a focus on enhancing speech, language, and literacy skills in children.

Renée prides herself as a confidence-building therapist whose focus is to showcase your child’s communication strengths and abilities.

Renée is creative and fun, and will often be on the floor playing with your young child to get that meaningful face-to-face connection, or in the case of your older child that meaningful time-away-from-the-screen connection.  She has a unique style that is built on her natural intuition, empathy, and ability to understand both a child’s and a parent’s perspective.  She is a dedicated professional who thinks outside the norm to assist and advocate for your child and your family.

Take comfort in knowing that Renée understands the challenges of parenting children with unique skills and abilities – her own daughters have been diagnosed with learning differences.  She has been on both sides of the IEP (Individual Education Plan) and IPRC (Identification Placement Review Committee) meeting tables, and she understands the results of assessments from a professional and parental point of view. With this rare perspective, Renée is a supportive guide that you can team with to help your child travel down the road to maximizing their full potential.
