Maureen Young, B.A., M.Sc., S-LP (C)

    Registered Speech-Language Pathologist




    specialize in the assessment, treatment and consultation of speech, language and communication disorders and delays of preschool and school-aged children.  


    I have an interest in the importance of the relationship between children and their caregivers and how that relationship fosters a child’s language development, success, friendships and overall well-being. 


    My specialties are in the following areas:


    * Delays and disorders of articulation/speech sound production

    * Oral-motor difficulties (e.g. hypernasal speech; velo-pharyngeal incompetency)

    * Delays and disorders in the understanding and processing of language

    * Expressive language delays including vocabulary and grammar delays

    * Narrative and story-telling difficulties

    * Communication disorders and social/joint referencing difficulties 

    * Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADD/ADHD

    * Fetal/Neonatal Alcohol Abstinence Disorder and

    * Stuttering and dysfluency.






  • I have been practicing Speech-Language Pathology for over 25 years with a Master of Science degree from the University of British Columbia. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Linguistics from Simon Fraser University.


    During my career I have worked in the public health sector in Vancouver and Surrey; in schools; and I have been a Clinical Instructor at the School of Audiology and Speech Sciences, UBC.


    I have also developed my private practice, Young Speech Pathology, delivering services to preschool- and school-aged clients in the Lower Mainland.


    I have developed close working relationships with community professionals such as physicians, public health nurses and early childcare providers.


    I am a member of the British Columbia Association of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists, Speech and Audiology Canada, and the College of Speech and Hearing Health Professionals of B.C.


    I am on the List of Registered Autism Service Providers, MCFD, and also provide service to children through the At Home Program, MCFD.


    Professionalism, quality care and

    communication are my strengths.


    Written and verbal assessment and progress reports are always available.

  • Testimonials



    “Maureen started working with my son when he was four-years-old.  She conducted an initial assessment that broke down what speech errors he had, and what would be age-appropriate to correct at the time.  Within a few sessions we saw results.  After working with him a couple times a month, for several months, those errors were corrected.” 



    “Thank you so much for teaching (our son).  His language skills have improved a lot.  We thank you so much for putting so much effort in helping.”



    “It was very enjoyable to work with Maureen.  Her skill seem to be an excellent match for (our son’s) interests.  Going forward we have a better idea of how to raise our child to be successful.  Thank you very much for your support”
