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. Each facility is staffed by speech-language pathologists  or other trained personnel. Through the support of Scottish Rite  members, these clinics, centers, and programs continue to increase. The  value of this philanthropy has long been apparent. Tens of thousands of  youngsters across the United States have been helped significantly. 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 SRCLP Clinics accept preschool children who have  difficulty speaking or understanding the spoken word or school-age  children who have difficulty learning to read. Some centers also offer  literacy training for adults. Inquiries on age groups and program  offerings in specific areas should be addressed to the director of the  local 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 your local facility for specific financial  information.
