Francine Lévesque, Administrative Assistant

Hello, my name is  Francine Lévesque and I work at the clinic as an Administrative Assistant.  I have a long history of work in a number of Hospitals and I am very happy to be a part of the team at Speech Therapy Le Carrefour.  Isabelle and I will do our best to meet your needs.

Our team

All of our Speech-Language Pathologists are licensed members of the Ordre des orthophonistes et audiologistes du Québec (OOAQ).

James Lapointe, M.Sc.A., Speech-Language Pathologist and owner

The profession of speech-language pathology has provided me with a variety of interesting experiences throughout my career.  I have work experience in rehabilitation, acute care, and currently in private practice.  I have been an active participant in student training since 2003 as a part-time lecturer at both the University of Montreal and McGill University.  During this time I have also had the privilege to provide continuing education courses for members of the Ordre des orthophonistes et audiologistes du Québec (OOAQ).   I held the position of Director from Quebec on the Board of Directors for Speech-Language and Audiology Canada (SAC) during a three year term from 2007-2010.    My professional experience covers all ages including children, adolescents as well as adults.   Beyond my professional experiences, I have found that having my own two young children has given me added insight into the development of language and the practice of my profession. 

Who is a Speech-Language Pathologist?
