Sharon completed her Master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology at the University of Ottawa in 2003 where she currently teaches Communication Disorders in Special Populations and Assistive Technologies to Support Reading

and Writing. Over the years, she has had the opportunity and privilege of offering a variety of training courses and workshops related to autism spectrum disorders and the Structured Teaching approach.


She has dedicated most of her career to working with children, adolescents and adults on the autism spectrum, initially as a behavioral therapist, and for the last 12 years, as a speech-language pathologist. 

When her two youngest daughters were diagnosed with language-based learning difficulties (dyslexia, dysorthographia), she decided to deepen her knowledge in order to better support them. Work related to these difficulties has now become an area of practice she truly enjoys!


Sharon enjoys spending time with her four children and husband, travelling and keeping active by playing a variety of sports.

Melanie completed her Master’s in Speech-Language Pathology at the University of Ottawa in 2004. Since then, Melanie has provided her SLP services in school settings in the Ottawa area as well as New Brunswick for over 10 years. Her time spent working in that environment has enabled her to develop a proficiency with respect to the impact of language difficulties on school learning. Her previous work experience has allowed her to support children (often from bilingual households) that possess difficulties with language comprehension, expressive language, reading, writing, articulation and stuttering. She also provided services in her own private practice in New Brunswick for nearly four years.


Over the course of her career, Melanie has had the opportunity to offer several workshops for teachers and parents, something she cherishes deeply. In her spare time, she enjoys reading and spending time with her two children and husband.
