Tess Fairburn
Speech & Language Pathologist

Screen Shot 2022-04-29 at 1.06.10 PM.png

I am a Speech Language Pathologist registered with CSHBC and certified through SAC. I completed my Masters in Science with The School of Audiology and Speech Sciences at the University of British Columbia and have been working in paediatric private practice ever since. Building rapport is a foundational aspect of my practice and I enjoy discovering what each of my clients are interested in and passionate about. Parents are experts in their children and I strongly believe in guiding parents to become their child’s best communication support. I am certified in Picture Exchange Communication Systems (PECS), Hanen It Takes Two to Talk, and PEERS for Adolescents. I have recently attended courses on Executive Functioning by Sarah Ward, Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC), and strategies for Small Talk and Conversation. I am looking forward to working with you, your child, and the rest of your child’s team!
