Lisa Nguyen

SLP

I was born and raised in Vancouver, B.C. I currently reside in Burnaby since 2020. I love to hike, golf, and eat amazing food. For the past decade, I have worked with children in some capacity (from bike instructor to lifeguard to SLP!). As a student, I attended a two-week program and worked with SLPs to provide service to children in Belize. I also presented a poster presentation at the 2019 American Speech and Hearing Association National conference about phonological awareness in Vietnamese children.

 

My therapy approach is evidence-based, child-led and play-based. My sessions integrate functional and real-life activities. I empower families to understand their child’s needs and teach families strategies to continue practice at home. I aim to provide neurodiversity-affirming speech therapy for my clients and their families.

 

Clinically, I have gained experience in both the public and private settings working with children in the areas of articulation and phonological disorders, autism spectrum disorder, language delay, fluency disorders, feeding disorders, and AAC. I have a special interest with bilingual language development and multicultural environments with speakers of English as a second language.
