My name is Shruti Salian, and I am a Speech-Language Pathologist. I graduated from Manipal University, India, with a Masters in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology in 2012. Since then, I have worked in various institutions and setups to support neurodiverse children with their speech and language needs. My journey began in Qatar in 2013, where I was fortunate to be on a team of highly motivated professionals who worked together to provide holistic, child-centered, coordinated care and support to children aged 2- 18 yrs. I moved to Canada in 2017 and was offered a chance at a preschool setup for neurodiverse children to pursue my career as well as be registered. I have been lucky to have expert supervisors and colleagues who helped me throughout my professional journey to become a registered SLP. I am excited and looking forward to being a part of the team at ECI Learning Academy. When I am not working, I am probably fretting over the developmental milestones for my 3-year-old son or google searching new recipes to ensure he thinks his mom is still the best cook in the whole wide world.
