PROGRAMS

Speech, language and literacy disorders can strike any child – with devastating outcomes. Many of these children struggle daily with the task of speaking, reading and writing. They become used to being teased, ignored, or scolded when they want to say something, when attempting to read, or when asked to write.  Unfortunately, countless children with speech, language and literacy disorders are socially promoted from one grade to the next and suffer from extremely low self-confidence and difficulty succeeding academically.

The California Scottish Rite Foundation designates the funds raised from their donors to support the RiteCare Childhood Language Centers of California. We have also partnered with several Universities and private practices, like Speech Goals, with the goal of making a lasting difference in the lives of children in California.  

Each year the Foundation provides support for life-changing speech, language, and literacy treatment of childhood language disorders to more than 2,300 children in communities across the state, free of charge.  Since its founding in 1958, the Foundation also provides in excess of $200,000.00 annually in support of a wide variety of scholarship assistance to over 100 California students pursuing undergraduate and graduate degrees.

RITECARE CENTERS

Each year the RiteCare Childhood Language Centers in California provide services to over 2,300 children with speech, language and literacy disorders.  The RiteCare Childhood Language Program clinics provide diagnostic evaluation and treatment of speech and language disorders, as well as learning disabilities. At the core of every program is the Scottish Rite mission to “help children communicate.”

Equally important, all services are available regardless of race, creed, or the family’s inability to pay.

Private Partnerships

By partnering with several private Speech-Language Pathologist practices, the California Scottish Rite Foundation can offer more services to more children in more communities. These partnerships also place speech pathologist graduate students in internships where needed, helping grow the next generation of speech professionals while increasing our ability to help the children who need our services the most.

We are currently partnered with Sunrise A Speech Pathology Corp in Fresno, Speech-Language Learning Associates, Inc. in Sacramento, and Speech Goals in Burlingame, Oakland, Santa Rosa and San Francisco.
