Navita Dhahan

MSLP, RSLP

I was born and raised in BC and currently live in Surrey. I enjoy exploring around the lower mainland finding new places to eat, exercise and spend time with my family and friends. In my spare time you will find me cooking, baking, hiking, practicing Pilates and singing (in my car!).

 

Along with exploring BC, I have also enjoyed travelling to other countries. A few of my favourite destinations include England, Turkey, Spain, Rome, and most recently Australia where I completed my masters.

 

Clinically, I have worked with children with a variety of diagnoses including Developmental Language Disorder, Speech Sound Disorders, Global Developmental Delay, Autism Spectrum Disorder as well as Fluency Disorders. My clinical experience has also included a variety of settings including public health, private practice, school and home environments.

 

My dedication as a Speech-Language Pathologist is providing fun, friendly, client-centered care to families as well as implementing evidence-based practice based on the most up to date research to ensure the best possible outcomes for my clients and their families.
