Cindy Harrison Receives Prestigious Award
We are very proud to announce that our own Cindy Harrison has been honoured by the Ontario Association for Speech Language Pathologists and Audiologists (OSLA) with their annual Honours of the Association award.
This prestigious award is presented annually to an OSLA member who has been nominated by their peers for making outstanding contributions to the Association and their respective profession.
“I am so honoured to receive this award as there is no higher compliment than one given by one’s peers,” says Cindy. “I share this award with the moms and dads who work so hard each and every
day to allow their children with autism to live their best lives. Most importantly, I share this award with our son, now 25, who was diagnosed with autism at 21 months. I am deeply grateful for his influence on my professional career. He is my best teacher and I continue to learn from him each and every day.”
Having practiced speech language pathology for over thirty-five years, Cindy has dedicated her career to helping children and youth with autism and developmental disabilities along with their families and has touched countless lives through her tireless work and advocacy.
Cindy is a true leader in her field and has taken on several leadership roles related to speech language pathology and co-founded two multidisciplinary practices, along with ACT Learning Centre. Cindy is the only Master Trainer for the PLAY Project in Canada and she trains clinicians to provide PLAY Project services under the Early Year’s pillar of the Ontario Autism Program. She also mentors a group of speech language pathologists and occupational therapists who are building a practice to provide autism
services to families living in Northern Ontario.
Congratulations Cindy on this well-deserved achievement!
