Our Values

Our practice values collaboration during assessment and during intervention in speech therapy and occupational therapy. Direct collaboration with the client, their family, and members of the healthcare team allows us to offer services that are individualized, specific and essential to our clients’ well-being.

Our Story

Launched in 2022, the Clinique Collabor'Action is the realization of the dream of three university friends. During our individual careers, we had the chance to work within teams that included various specialists who collaborate in order to offer the best service to their customers. Our goal was to bring to New Brunswick this interprofessional approach that we had the chance to observe and practise across Canada and even outside the country.

 

Therefore, we decided to open the Clinique Collabor'Action with the aim of offering speech therapy and occupational therapy services focused on:

  • Inclusivity and accessibility

  • Autonomy, quality of life, and self-development

  • Evidence-based practice

  • Client and family-centered care
