We are very thankful for all our clients over the past 34 years (and counting!).

Here is what some of them have to say: 

“The service, knowledge, patience and good attitude of the speech therapists are great; my autistic son has improved a lot in the past five years here. I highly recommend this clinic.”

- Bill

“My husband, Les, and I are just over three years into his struggle with aphasia. I could not put a price on the care and support shown by Columbia Speech and Language Services’ dedicated therapists during both his in-home therapy and his weekly attendance at the Surrey Aphasia Group. Without them, Les would not be doing as well as he is doing today. We are extremely grateful.”

- Debbie Hoover

“Coming here was one of the best decisions I have made in my life; I only wish that I had come two years ago. I’m glad to be part of such a great group of passionate therapists and supportive fellow stutterers and friends. This marks a pivotal point in my life, better prepares me for my future endeavors, and helps me take on challenges that I never imagined would be possible.”

- Saeed Kalafchi

“Columbia Speech & Language Services has an impressive, tailor made accent reduction program. As an immigrant from the Southwest part of China, I have always found that people get confused whenever I pronounce words with the “L” or “N” sound. Thanks to the special techniques learned from my instructor, Tracey Jalovec, I can now speak with confidence.  Tracey brings a great deal of professionalism and patience to her teaching. I have benefited enormously from her instruction. Having had English as a second language for many years, I learned for the first time how Canadian English should be spoken and how it should sound.” 

- Lauren

“The Columbia Speech and Language staff has been an integral part of my daughter’s support team. Their continuing hard work and skill has been instrumental in my daughter’s ability to successfully communicate and interact with the world.”

- John B

“I go to Aphasia Group every week because it gets me out of the house. It helps me with my talking. I like to meet other people who have the same affliction. Thank you for helping me.”

- Les Hoover (client in our Surrey Aphasia Group)

“This program reduced my accent a lot! I have more confidence than before when talking to people. Tracey is the best teacher ever! Thank you very much for teaching me. This program is really good and you are awesome!”

- Elena Yang

“This clinic has been a life-changing experience. It has lifted a huge weight off my shoulders and now I am more confident to take on my career with fluency.”

- Conrad Ma

“Tracey is a wonderful teacher who has been doing a great job helping me to improve my accent. She taught me how to coordinate my jaw, tongue and lips to produce the proper sounds. I feel very lucky to have learned from Tracey and recommend her without reservations to anyone looking for a fun, interesting, and effective class. I will miss our weekly meetings!”

- Katrin

“It’s crucial that if a person stutters and is serious about becoming fluent, they have a chance to go through this program. It is a support, group, stuttering clinic, tools provider and life altering experience.”

- Kate S.

“The decision to attend this clinic was the best choice I’ve ever made; the SLPs have given us the tools and techniques to master our speech fluency.”

- Paul Le

“You will not realize the value and importance of fluent speech until you try the program at Columbia using ‘connected speech’. The program has worked wonders for me and I would recommend it to anyone who would like to get fluent.”
