Cassie Tam

MSc., RSLP, SLP(C)

During my second year at the University of British Columbia, I began my journey to becoming an SLP when I started work as a behavioural interventionist with two children with Autism in Vancouver. With this new passion of working with children with special needs, I pursued my graduate degree in Alberta. Since then, I have worked extensively with children with a variety of complex communication needs in one-to-one and group therapy settings. I believe that children learn best when their caregivers are empowered to support their communication needs.

My Experience

  • I am a Registered Speech-Language Pathologist practicing in BC, Canada specializing in working with the pediatric population.
  • I received my Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology from the University of Alberta.
  • I am providing pediatric speech and language therapy services to children from 0-18 years of age. I have worked in private settings, public health units, and a local child development centre. 
  • I work closely in collaboration with parents, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Behavioural Consultants, Infant Development Consultants, Supported Child Development, etc., to provide comprehensive and collaborative services for my clients. 
  • I am always learning to keep up to date with new research to provide evidence based services for my clients.
  • I am providing services mostly through telehealth to support families located anywhere in BC!
  • In my spare time, you will find me spending time with my dog, Luna, and exploring all the local eats in Vancouver.
