Lorianne Lacerte, MPO – Owner of the clinic
Member of the Ordre des Orthophonistes et Audiologistes du Québec
Interested by neurology and having always wanted to work in an environment that allows her to help others, Lorianne begins her training at the Université de Montréal in psychology, with the goal of becoming a neuropsychologist. During this training, she finds herself particularly interested in child development, communication and all neurological aspects related to learning. This leads her to redirect her studies towards speech therapy. She thus begins a degree in speech therapy at the University of Montreal and pursues her studies with a professional master’s degree, which she completes in 2011.
Lorianne begins her private clinic practice as a student during her studies towards a master’s degree, and continues part-time in a private clinic after having graduated. Over the years, Lorianne helps a diverse clientele: preschool or school-aged children with language delays or disorders. Over the years, she becomes specialized with school-aged children, teenagers and adults with oral language disorders (dysphasia) and written language disorders (dyslexia-dysorthographia).
In addition to working in a private clinic, she works as a speech therapist in acute care for three years. In hospital settings, she does assessments and interventions with patients who have swallowing disorders (dysphagia), language disorders (aphasia) and speech disorders (dysarthria).
Anxious to perfect her skills and offer quality services, she follows various trainings and updates her knowledge by reading reference books and scientific articles. She regularly discusses with her colleagues to exchange intervention ideas and discover new evaluation tools.
Lorianne works closely with parents, as well as other school professionals (resource specialists, teachers…). She strongly believes that each child can learn and improve, no matter how severe his difficulties may be. Her goal is therefore to work with them and their community to develop personal strategies to make them successful.
