About a Welcome Learning Journey ... and Kim 

Kim Chute is a Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP therapist) with over 30 years of experience serving individuals, families and educators in rural and remote communities. She is comfortable with a range of unique developmental profiles, and welcomes opportunities to collaborate together in homes, places of learning as well as online via Zoom. Through conversation, play and fun activities we get to know each other, share ideas and plan an encouraging path forward. With humility Kim recognizes we are a diverse community of learners, so we honour each person's profile including their gifts. Kim is committed to offering evidence-based, client-centered, and culturally responsive services based on unique needs. She continually welcomes new insights from families and educators to expand her knowledge and skills  ... so grateful for this enriching and fascinating livelihood as a speech-language therapist. 

SLPs offer support for challenges or differences related to:

  • comprehending the meaning of what others say (receptive language)

  • relating socially with others in play & conversation

  • developing literacy (processing sounds, reading & spelling, printing to express ideas)

  • using augmentative & alternative (AAC) communication systems

  • speaking with a healthy voice (quality, resonance & more)

  • speaking with smooth 'flow' vs interruptions (e.g. stuttering)

  • using our attention & memory to process speech & language

  • nonverbal cues like facial expression, gestures & body language)

  • regulating energy, temperament & emotions for successful communication & learning

  • feeding & swallowing
