Melissa James

Melissa James, B.A., M.H.Sc. (Reg. CASLPO) is a Toronto-based speech-language pathologist who provides speech, social and communication services to adults and consultant services to workplaces.

Melissa trained at the University of Guelph and the University of Toronto obtaining a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Psychology and a Master's of Health Science in Speech-Language Pathology. 

After providing clinical service in the community and educational settings, she founded Well Said: Toronto Speech Therapy Clinic in 2012 out of a vision for an adult specialty speech clinic in downtown Toronto where experienced adult-focused speech-language pathologists could work with clients in a safe, age-appropriate environment.

Since then Melissa has mentored and supervised other speech-language pathologists and developed the clinic into one of the top 10 speech therapy clinics in Toronto.

Melissa’s personal practice focuses on integrating evidence-based (research) practices from the fields of adult learning, psychology, and speech-language pathology which allows for deep learning and permanent improvements.  

Melissa is open to research collaborations and invites proposals to conduct scholarly research at our clinic.
