Meghan Edson
Registered Speech Language Pathologist

About Meghan

Meghan is a life long Edmontonian who enjoys playing with her puppy Babu, hanging out with her niece and nephew, and going for long walks on the city’s beautiful river valley trails. Meghan’s passion for helping others and her love of science is what led her to become a speech-language pathologist (SLP). She has experience working with children with a wide range of communication needs including speech (e.g., articulation, phonological disorders, and apraxia of speech), language, literacy, stuttering, and social communication in home, community, and virtual settings. She also has experience working with alternative and augmentative communication (AAC). Meghan’s area of special interest is autism spectrum disorder.

A key component of Meghan’s practice is collaboration with clients and families to set meaningful speech, language, and communication goals and work towards them together. One of her favorite parts of her job as an SLP is continuously building her skills and staying current on research-supported practices so that she can individualize her treatment approach to each client. Meghan looks forward to working with clients to provide fun, meaningful, and evidence-based speech-language pathology services.
