Speech Therapy

Speech Therapy aims to help those with speech or language disorders to increase their levels of communication. North Oaks’ state-licensed Speech-Language Pathologists evaluate you and implement a customized speech therapy plan designed to meet your needs, with clear objectives and strategies.
