Elissa Benjamin, MS CCC-SLP Speech-Language Pathologist

In practice since 2007, Elissa has developed a specialization in family-based services for infants and toddlers who have late language emergence, often in the context of a complex developmental or medical profile. Using a parent coaching model, Elissa collaborates with parents, training them to integrate early language stimulation techniques into their child’s everyday routines. Her goal is to empower parents throughout the therapy process and show them that they have the skills to help their children reach their potential. This therapy approach is evidence-based, family-centered and supports the child’s appropriate developmental stage.

Elissa graduated from Boston University with a Masters of Science in Speech & Language Pathology. She is a member of the American Speech and Hearing Association and Ordre des Orthophonistes et Audiologistes du Québec.  In addition, Elissa is Hanen certified for It Takes Two To Talk and Target Word and helps coordinate continuing education workshops for SLPs in Montreal. In her spare time, Elissa enjoys pilates, creative writing and spending time with her three sons.
