Why us? We help clients build success at school and work!

Kingdon and Associates provides holistic professional support services tailored to the needs of the individual, including:

  • Specialized tutoring with a professional academic strategist
  • Vocational and Academic counselling with a qualified therapist
  • School or workplace advocacy for accommodations
  • Registered “in house” Speech Language Therapist (SLP)
These services can take place conveniently in your home (in-person), in the community (i.e. library or clinician’s office) or virtually (live online).

Kingdon and Associates service providers are experienced, highly trained specialists. Services are available for all ages and abilities.

Our unique professional academic and vocational support services, assist individuals in developing the necessary skills to be successful and independent with their learning and vocational pursuits.

This generally leads clients to be better equipped to manage the challenges of life, preparing them for the future, by building on their strengths, increasing their independence, boosting confidence and maximizing their full potential.

Our services can complement what is being offered through schools and other professional services (i.e. occupational therapy). We endeavour to collaboratively find personalized solutions, by thinking ‘outside the box’ with our creative, client-centred approach.
