Thank you for visiting the 2013 Boston Marathon fundraising page for my run to raise funds for the MGH Institute of Health Professions Speech, Language, and Literacy Center (SLLC). I am also running to raise awareness and support for students of all ages who aim to improve their reading skills.
My goal is to raise at least $5,000 to support the SLLC.
MGH Institute of Health Professions and the SLCC provide training to graduate students and services to children and adults with communication and reading difficulties. The SLLC offers comprehensive assessment, therapy and specialty services for developmental and acquired disorders of speech and language in the areas of:
- Issues from birth to three years of age, preschool, and school age
- Dyslexia and other reading difficulties
This clinic offers services to families while also training clinicians as part of the graduate programs. The funds raised will go toward supporting the training program and scholarship funds for families who can benefit from tuition relief.
As a faculty member of MGH IHP, I am grateful to work with the students, faculty, and staff whose goals are to improve speech, language, and literacy outcomes for our struggling learners of all ages.
Thank you for your support and generosity!
