We understand that every child’s needs are different, that is why we offer private speech and language therapy services. It can be a more suitable option for children daunted by a group environment or who need more intensive specialist help.

Speech and language difficulties often have a significant impact on a child’s ability to access the national curriculum and achieve their learning potential.

At North Star Speech & Language Therapy we can provide support and intervention for children and young people who have been identified as have speech, language or communication needs and for those who have not yet been assessed but may be at risk of communication difficulties.

There will be lots of opportunities for parents to speak to the speech and language therapist about any concerns or questions they may have about their child’s speech, language or social development and receive some initial advice on what to do next.

If you are looking for private speech and language therapy for your child or need further assistance, get in touch.

Our mission is to empower children and young people to develop their speech, language and communication skills to their full potential.
