Learn more about Trent

Trent has worked in over 30 public schools serving children from pre-Kindergarten through to Grade 12 in Saskatchewan and Alberta. Coming from a strong linguistics background and excelling in the Speech Pathology Master’s program, he went on to complete a Master’s in Educational Leadership to learn how to implement educational initiatives and change the state of childhood learning in Canada. Trent enjoys connecting with families and getting down to the child’s level. Freeing his “inner-child” helps children to expand on their natural curiosities and desire to learn. Putting client engagement, participation, self-confidence and self-esteem at the fore-front of therapy, clients often forget they are “working” as they get lost in fun and fast-paced activities!
