About Wee Talk

Wee Talk offers programs and therapy to children with speech and language difficulties in Guelph, Wellington County and Dufferin County. Services are offered at many sites in these areas, in English or French. Wee Talk is a free service that is funded by the Ministry of Child and Youth Services, and is delivered by Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health together with our Wee Talk partners.

Wee Talk is committed to equitable service for all children across the preschool speech and language system. We make sure each child has the same response time for their initial visit, and can access the same pathways to service, evaluation and therapy.

  • Information about how babies and young children learn to talk, and how parents can help
  • Speech, language, and communication skills assessment
