We encourage direct referral by parents, but anyone can refer with parental consent. The exception is that referrals of Junior Kindergarten students must come directly from parents.

There are three ways to make a referral:

Communication Checkup
  • Complete the Language Express Communication Checkup and then choose the online referral option.
  • Call 1-888-503-8885 or 613-283-2742.
  • Fax a referral to 613-283-2924.
  • Due to privacy concerns we cannot accept referrals by email.

These checklists are useful for health care providers and early years professionals making referrals:
