🎉 We’re Moving to a New Location! 🎉

🌱Since 2019, we’ve been committed to providing holistic, neurodiversity-affirming, inclusive, and connection-focused services. As our practice continues to grow, we’re excited to announce that we’ll be moving to a bigger space to better serve all of you!

📅 Mark Your Calendars: August 1st
🗺️ New Address: 10615 124 St, Edmonton

Our new location is in the trendy Westmount area (aka within walking distance of Duchess Bake Shop 🥐). This move means shorter commutes for many of our west-end clients and more space for our sensory and movement-focused approach.

Here’s what you can look forward to:
✨ More room for sensory regulation tools and activities (slides, swings, tunnels, tents, and big movement spaces)
✨ Extended hours and increased clinician availability

Parking is still convenient as ever with designated spots for Wee Sprout Speech clients, and our fun waiting area will keep your little ones entertained!

We’re here to support you every step of the way. Reach out with any questions or concerns about our move. We can’t wait to welcome you to our new space! 💚🌱

We’re so exciiiited and we just can’t hiiiiiiiiide it! 🥳

✨We are launching our first ever toddler language- building class. This 4-week group class is perfect if you aren’t sure if your child needs 1:1 therapy, but you’d like to chat with a SLP and get into some fun AND skill-building activities this summer.

👍It’s budget friendly and may even be covered by your insurance.
👍It’s in a central location with free-parking (AND great chai ☕️ upstairs)
👍It’s music and movement based (aka dance party)
👍It will be a small group, so you can get to know other parents and kids in the same boat!
👍Tuesday mornings from 10:00-11:00 (we all need to get out of the house at this exact time)

📧DM us or email [email protected] to register.
Limited spots will fly so get on the list quick!! 🚦🟢💨

😰Sick of post-screen-time-meltdowns?? 👀➡️➡️

❓I’m curious, do you agree or disagree with these lists? Do your kids just walk away all together if the show isn’t fast-paced enough?

➕I’ll admit some of the “slower” shows don’t keep their attention quite as long, but I feel like that’s also a good thing? (As long as I can still get a minute or two of peace!!). My kids will still watch the shows I choose and since they’re not quite so invested, they are okay with it being turned off.

➕I cannot handle the post-screen time zombies, even though there isn’t anything bad about those shows in the next list, they seem to lead to kids being MEGA hooked and distressed when it gets turned off.

➕We also don’t do any iPad/tablet time in our house (only for travel, I’m still human) because it leads to the ultimate screen-time hangover. 😵

What is your go-to show that still maintains some civility in the house!? 🤲

Let’s band together, we can all use the suggestions and try out what other kids are tuning into. 🛟

Did you know we provide services to children of all ages? 🌟

It’s never too early to check in with us! If you have concerns, even when they’re babies, let’s talk. Trust your gut, even if you’re told to “wait and see” or “wait until they’re 3.”

We promise you’ll never regret just having a conversation with us. 🌱 We’re always here to listen, validate, and empower you! ❤️

Those moments of connection—seeing the smile and look of anticipation for the next tickle, toss, spin, or jump—are what I always strive for. 🪄

At Wee Sprout Speech, everyone you meet shares this same dedication. I am committed to building the most thoughtful, kind, and compassionate team of therapists and support staff, ensuring you receive the highest level of care and support possible. ❤️

If you have questions or concerns about your child’s communication, book a consultation at weesproutspeech.janeapp.com via the link in my bio. 🗓️

At our clinic, connection comes first. 🌟

🤝We believe that building strong, meaningful connections is the foundation of effective therapy.

☁️Every goal we set and every strategy we use is designed with this in mind. It’s always about the person first.

💫If we can help your child connect with others, everything else will follow.

❤️ Book with us today to experience the difference!

I’ve never done this before, so I thought it was time to introduce myself! 🙋‍♀️

I’m Britt, the founder and face behind Wee Sprout Speech, a private speech therapy clinic in Edmonton, AB. ☀️

I started this practice in 2018 because I felt defeated and discouraged working in schools. I didn’t know my students well and barely knew their families. I questioned my enjoyment of being an SLP altogether. It turns out, I just needed to carve my own path and find a way to work with children that felt authentic, genuine, and meaningful.

Working in my practice and building real connections with clients is my passion. I also love supporting other therapists to do the same. 🤍

I have big plans for Wee Sprout to expand its reach and support children across disciplines beyond speech therapy. I view therapy holistically and believe that a team of like-minded clinicians can offer the most valuable services to our families.

I am thrilled to be here and even more excited to share what’s to come. ✨🚀

☎️Our team is always growing to specialize and support a wider range of needs, so reach out for a consultation and let’s chat about your little one! 💫

Happy Mother’s Day 💕

This probably sounds slightly insane, but I can’t imagine a better day than taking our kids to Disneyland. So that’s exactly what we’re gonna do 🤗

P.s. Moms are heroes. ✨

It’s kind of wild to think about how I left my school job back in 2018, and now here I am, getting new client calls daily, hiring therapists and doing a branding photo shoot. 📸

Sometimes I forget to celebrate those little wins and feel like I should be doing more to help more families and chase bigger dreams. 💭

But then there are moments when I sit back and realize- making a positive change in the life of even one child is literally living my dream. And I get to do that every day. ✨

I honestly love what I do now more than ever. It’s all because of the amazing families and kids I get to know and build real relationships with, and the trust they put in me.

This isn’t just a job—it’s my absolute obsession! 💕

💬Is your child hard to understand? Are you worried that they should be talking more than they are?

➡️Don’t wait, reach out now!

🤩We don’t open our client lists very often, but thanks to the addition of a few new team members, we can offer services to more families in Edmonton this spring and summer.

🗓️We know life is hectic, so we have a variety of flexible scheduling options: in-clinic, in-home, virtual delivery or even at daycare or preschool!

no shade to screen-time, it’s a part of my parenting repertoire too. 🙋‍♀️

but we can all use a break every now and then. easier said than done? not with these no to low-prep activities 🤩🙌

⭐️cooking dinner? long road-trip?⭐️ throw on a kids’ podcast 🎧 or audiobook 📖

⭐️post daycare meltdown central?⭐️ just. add. water. 💧(or bubbles or play dough) 🫧☁️

⭐️need to lock yourself in the pantry and eat chocolate or cry?⭐️ pull out the magnetic tiles or stacking blocks 🧲

this is also where i see massive benefits of dreamdough and loose parts play. it incorporates sensory play, with open-ended toys! this combo really does capture little minds in a different way than most activities can. 🧠

COMBINE ALL 3 you say??
🙀listen to the very hungry caterpillar, crack open a dreamdough jar (🌷spring kits launching soon, include bugs and spring vocab!) and tell the story of the 🐛!! 🍎 🍐 🍓 🍰 🧀 🥧 🍭 🍫 🧁

save this and come back to it when h-e-🏒🏒 is breaking loose!! 🛟

the secret sauce 🤫to winning at parenting 👀 =

screen-free, zero-prep, educational (!!) activities that your kids will love (and will play with for a shocking amount of time) ✨🙌

i have yet to meet a child (honestly of any age) who passes by a dreamdough activity with engaging and open-ended materials.

it’s not magic, it’s the culmination of everything a kid’s brain loves! but i will says, it’s taken me nearly 10 years of playing with children every single day to really figure out what that combination is (materials that are engaging AND developmentally beneficial are not random, they’re veeery intentional).

and i got you. ☺️

every single parent should have this secret weapon in their diaper bag. and once you do, be the hero amongst your friends and get them one too.

it is my parental obligation to ensure you have this heavy-hitter within arms reach during post-daycare meltdowns, quiet-time while baby is sleeping, excruciating airport and airplane waits, restaurant meals and “are we there yet” road trips.

don’t buy another app or put on that annoying YouTube video until you’ve tried this. just buy dreamdough 😚☁️

custom fairy kits for a couple big sisters expecting new siblings very soon! 🧚

i think i speak for all parents when i say- skip the newborn onesies and help out mom and dad by investing in some open-ended activities that the older siblings can enjoy over and over. 🙌

these kits will be the mvp to keeping the toddlers busy while mom and dad are swept up in newborn madness. 🌪️

reach out for customization if you’d like to create a special gift for a growing family! ✨☁️

We get it – life as a parent can be a whirlwind of tasks, meetings, and to-dos.

But here’s a gentle reminder: taking just 30 seconds to get down on the floor and engage with your child, even in a toy-less moment, can work wonders for their language development! 🌈✨

In the midst of our busy schedules, it’s easy to underestimate the impact of brief, intentional interactions. Imagine the joy in your child’s eyes as you share a quick moment of play, exchange a few words, or embark on a mini-adventure together without the need for fancy toys.

✨ These small moments create big impacts on your little one’s language development. ✨

Discover how even the busiest parent can become a language-building hero in just half a minute.

happy 4th birthday to the brightest light of a human i have ever known. her mom or not, i don’t think many people would disagree. this lil gal makes everyone around her feel special just by being who she is. as her preschool teacher said “olive is friends with everyone and makes sure that everyone feels included.”
