Letter from a grateful parent:

You Can Make a Difference!

“It is difficult to find words to express thanking you for saving our child’s life. This is what you have done. You took our beloved child, destined for failure and heartache, and pointed him in the direction of happiness and success.”

The RiteCare Childhood Language Center of San Diego, located in Mission Valley, opened in 1981. Since opening, we have provided services to thousands of children in the San Diego area. Our services are provided by licensed, board-certified speech-language pathologists. Speech-language pathology evaluations and therapy are provided for a variety of communication disorders. Each child who is accepted into our program receives up to $7,000 in services and all treatment is offered to families free of charge.
