Speechworks Takes Part in the Burlington Children’s Festival

The Burlington Children’s Festival is celebrating its 24th year with a sports themed event. Enjoy free sports-themed, fun activities, including live entertainment, crafts, themed shows, a kid’s marketplace as well as food vendors if you end up staying for a while.



The Festival is taking place on Sunday August 16, 2015 from 10am-5pm at Spencer Smith Park 1400 Lakeshore Road in Burlington.


Admission and events are all free.


Our staff will be present at the festival from 10-5 on August 16th. Feel free to come and visit!

Highly trained and skilled Speech Language Pathologists and Communicative Disorders Assistants will be on sight to answer any questions you may have about your child’s speech, language and literacy needs.

There will be pamphlets available with communication expectations for the parents to take home. There will also be information about voice for those with family members with voice disorders. We will have information about all of the services we offer (not just for the kids).

There will be games set up for the children as well, they can walk away with prizes: stickers, candies, and temporary tattoos can be won. You can also walk away with a FREE beach ball!

Just look for the white tent with the S.L. Hunter SpeechWorks sign attached. We will all be wearing purple shirts!

We hope to see everyone at the Burlington Children’s Festival. August 16th at Spencer Smith Park.
