Coralie Desjardins

Caroline first obtained a bachelor's degree in linguistics at the Université du Québec à Montréal, then graduated in speech-language pathology from McGill University in 1998.

From the beginning of her practice, she has been interested in children with various developmental difficulties, including autism spectrum disorder, language disorders and learning disabilities. Early in her career, she worked on various pediatric teams at the Montreal Children's Hospital.

In November 2014, she joined the team at the Clinique régionale d'évaluation des troubles complexes du développement de la Montérégie-Est. As part of a team of various health professionals, she contributes in determining the clinical profile of children with various difficulties, including autism spectrum disorder, language disorders and specific learning disabilities.

For more than 12 years, she has also been involved in private practice and has specialized in written language intervention with clients in school (children and adolescents). She is also interested in lexical access difficulties, which are often associated with a reading or communication disorder. 

Long-term interventions allow her to develop a privileged and personalized bond between the student, his or her family and the support team.

She also wants to demystify learning disabilities for the student and his family in order to build on the student's potential and encourage reading, regardless of tastes or speed.
