Scottish RiteCare Early Language Program

The Scottish RiteCare Early Language Program offers an extended language clinic program for preschoolers with speech, language and communication delays.

The RiteCare Early Language Program, established in 2007, is supported by a generous grant from the Scottish Rite Foundation, which helps provide an affordable, high quality, preschool type experience for children from all over the Cedar Valley area.


About our Services

The Scottish RiteCare program provides developmentally appropriate learning opportunities for 3-5 year old children with mild to severe speech and language delays and children with special needs. Typically developing peers are also welcome in the program.

Graduate student clinicians, in conjunction with a certified/licensed Speech-Language Pathologist and classroom teacher, plan curriculum using parts of the Creative Curriculum for Preschool and the Handwriting Without Tears Programs, among other individual and group based intervention approaches.

Individual speech and language therapy sessions are provided each child participant, twice weekly for 50 minute sessions. Classroom and individual treatment goals are written in conjunction so as to provide continuity throughout a child’s day and to promote increased growth in targeted areas of speech, language and communication development.
