Shea Westcott, MS, R.SLP, CCC-SLP, SLP(C)
I grew up in Winnipeg and always felt the need to help others. This led me to pursue Speech-Language Pathology. I completed my Masters degree in Minnesota in 2006 and then moved to Edmonton to build my career, focusing on stuttering and effective communication. Personally, I find it so rewarding to be a part of life-changing transformations. For the past 14 years, my clients have overcome obstacles, great and small, allowing them to participate in conversations with ease and clarity. I love witnessing new-found confidence that comes with tackling these challenges.
I have extensive training and experience with a variety of therapy techniques including:
Palin Parent-Child Interaction (PCI) therapy
Comprehensive Stuttering Program (CSP)
Treatment of Word-Final Repetitions (i.e., Atypical Disfluencies)
Treatment of Cluttering
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to address feelings/emotions about stuttering
Accent on Canadian English (ACE) Accent Modification
Treatment of Effective Communication / Public Speaking
Assessments and therapy can either be completed in-person at my home office in southwest Edmonton or online from the comfort of your own home!
I am frequently asked to deliver presentations and workshops to train other SLPs in preschool and school-aged stuttering treatment, specifically on the Lidcombe Program, in western Canada and the US. I have also presented research at the Oxford Dysfluency Conference in the UK. Mentoring SLPs has been a significant part of my career as I have a wealth of information to share from my experiences over the years.
When I’m not helping my clients, I keep very busy with my two active children. I enjoy family game nights, curling, golfing, and I hope for the best while attempting brand new recipes!
