Denitsa, the founder of The Communication Clinic, is a seasoned speech-language pathologist with years of experience helping children thrive. She has a Masters of Speech-Language Pathology with special emphasis on childhood language disorders, and has since gone on to complete dozens of courses and workshops to sharpen her practice. Her clinical practice is inspired by the Greenspan Floortime Approach and Social Thinking.

She also has extensive experience with children and young adults with ASD (autism spectrum disorders), and strives to create a stimulating atmosphere that is conducive to learning in her therapy sessions. Additionally, she is interested in AAC (augmentative and alternative communication) for nonverbal or minimally verbal children, using technology in her sessions. Denitsa is bilingual and provides services in English and Bulgarian. She is a registered member of the CASLPO (College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists of Ontario), SAC (Speech-Language and Audiology Canada), and the OSLA (Ontario Speech and Language Association).
