Often the children of Kids Are Kids! relate to their Therapist as their friend, “My special friend who helps me talk”. Julia Noakes, Senior Speech Pathologist at Kids Are Kids! is a friend and more to the children and families she works with. Just last week she celebrated 10 years of helping children with disabilities or learning difficulties at Kids Are Kids!; her accomplishments have been so significant helping children overcome speech and language disorders or impediments. We congratulate Julia on her 10 years at Kids Are Kids! and look forward to many years ahead.
