“We have nothing but positive things to say about Jason’s SLP sessions with Kirsten. She is very knowledgeable of the field and the techniques she uses through play have helped Jason with his communication. Kirsten is also very punctual and organized and she has been of great assistance pointing us to resources we can access to help our son. Jason always looks forward to his sessions with Kirsten.”


Child’s Age: 5 Years Old
Calgary, AB

Kirsten is a highly skilled therapist who understands not only the physiology, but the emotional component that exists in children with speech difficulties. She communicates with the school and other providers/agencies to ensure my daughter’s treatment plan is on track. My daughter has gained more confidence since working with Kirsten and Sara, which has given her the ability to feel secure communicating and initiating conversations both at home and at school. We are so grateful for Kirsten and It’s a Speech Thing!!”

Child’s Age: 9 Years Old
Calgary, AB

“Our daughter has been working with Kirsten for only a short time, but in that time we’ve seen a huge change. 

Not only has she learned helpful tools to help her manage her stutter, she also leaves speech-language therapy sessions feeling supported, confident, and happy!

In her own words, “Kirsten is very patient and fun, and she’s always very positive!”

As parents, we were nervous about sending our daughter to a speech pathologist. We’d had unhelpful experiences in the past and were concerned about the cost and how much our daughter would get out of her sessions. We definitely don’t feel that way anymore!

It’s been a huge relief and we’re so grateful to have found Kirsten and It’s A Speech Thing. 

Thank you, Kirsten!”


Child’s Age: 6 Years Old

My 6 year old son worked with Kirsten Kelly as his Speech Pathologist for 10 months from 2019-2020. We met with her weekly and biweekly during that time. My son thoroughly enjoyed attending his speech interventions with Kirsten – she made learning fun for him and he never hesitated to meet with her. She quickly developed a focused learning plan for him with specific goals and milestones. As progress was being made, she modified the learning plan accordingly. The speech and learning progress my son made with Kirsten was remarkable; however, the coaching and assistance she provided to me was invaluable. Kirsten was very open with me about the support she could provide and the additional support she felt was necessary for my son. She was able to refer us to other professionals in her network and she helped us navigate the way to find more specialized support. Kirsten conducted an in-depth Speech Assessment that diagnosed my son with having an Expressive and Receptive language delay and difficulties with phonological awareness skills. Her assessment helped unlock resources at my son’s school, which resulted in additional support being provided to him. I cannot say enough positive about Kirsten’s work, her professionalism, her ability to connect with my son and develop his speech, as well as her overall guidance and counsel to me. Without hesitation, I highly recommend Kirsten for all things Speech related!”
