Sacramento RiteCare Childhood Language Center
6151 H Street • Sacramento, CA 95819
In the early 1950s in Colorado, the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry of the Southern Jurisdiction of the United States initiated a program to help children with speech and language disorders.
The results obtained from this program led to the establishment of RiteCare Scottish Rite Childhood Language Program (SRCLP) clinics to provide diagnostic evaluation and treatment of speech and language disorders, as well as learning disabilities.
Today, there are SRCLP clinics, centers, and special programs operating or planned for children and therapists located throughout the United States.
The Sacramento RiteCare Childhood Language Center, now in its 30th year, has served over 1,000 youngsters. Our facility is staffed by speech-language pathologists or other trained personnel.
Through the support of Scottish Rite members, our clinics and programs continue to increase. The value of this philanthropy has long been apparent.
With the good work of dedicated clinicians and parents, the Scottish Rite has achieved successes that could only be imagined a few years back. Children who might have remained educationally behind for a lifetime can now talk, read, and lead productive lives.
As a rule, the Sacramento SRCLP Clinic accepts preschool children who have difficulty speaking or understanding the spoken word or school-age children who have difficulty learning to read.
Inquiries on age groups and program offerings in specific areas should be addressed to the director of the Sacramento Scottish Rite facility. Equally important, all services are available regardless of race, creed, or the family’s inability to pay.
While all children in need are eligible for available SRCLP treatment, please consult with our facility for specific financial information.
