The RiteCare Childhood Language Center of Pasadena, is a private, nonprofit organization that has provided millions of dollars in services to thousands of children. We are one of 16 RiteCare Language Programs throughout California supported by the California Scottish Rite Foundation. Help ensure the future of our children by making a contribution today!
Established in 1992, the Pasadena RiteCare Childhood Language Center provides services to preschool children 18 months to six years.
There are no geographical restrictions, however our focus is on Pasadena and surrounding communities.
We do not provide long-term services to children who are already receiving therapy, who are eligible for intensive special education services through the public schools, or who have a primary diagnosis other than specific language impairment.
We are committed to providing quality services to young children with speech and language disorders. Our primary goals are 1) early identification and treatment of language disorders and 2) facilitating family involvement in this process.
We believe early intervention can help prevent a speech and language disorder from developing into a lifelong handicap. In addition, it can help curtail the development of secondary language delays such as behavior, emotional, and learning problems.
Families are involved in every stage of treatment. Through observations of therapy sessions and discussing intervention with the therapist, parents learn how to promote speech and language skills during daily interactions.
Therapy is conducted within the context of developmentally appropriate activities such as playing with toys, sharing books, and using computers. This makes therapy fun and motivating for the child.
Through gathering background information, observation, and testing, a speech-language pathologist helps to determine your child’s strengths and weaknesses in the areas of speech and language and recommends an appropriate course of treatment.
Therapy is provided to children with specific language disorders. The speech-language pathologist works with both the child and caregivers to facilitate the development of more appropriate communication skills.
Children are seen one to three times per week in individual sessions and/or small groups of two. A maximum of 24 months of treatment provided.
