WHAT JENNY DOES

As a Registered Speech Language Pathologist, Jenny principally offers individual and group therapy called Social Thinking for children and adults with social deficits. This programme entails a cognitive therapy for smart, awkward people and is based on Michelle Garcia-Winner's work. In addition, Jenny completes speech-language assessments, consults to professional organizations and schools, and practices as a speech language therapist. She advises schools and school districts across British Columbia to help develop social strategies and goals that can easily be implemented within the curriculum. During the summer months, she runs Summer Social, a therapeutic summer camp for children and adolescents.
