BENEFITING: Scottish Rite Childhood Language Center
EVENT DATE: Feb 19, 2012
The Pasadena Scottish Rite Childhood Language Center
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.
