CHILDHOOD LANGUAGE DISORDERS
The Scottish Rite Foundation of Colorado (RiteCare) annually provides grants to ten speech-language partners throughout Colorado to help defray the cost of speech therapy for 600 children and their families. Qualification is determined based upon need and family income. Since its formation in 1953, the Foundation has provided services to over 23,000 children.
Treasure Chest Program
Early Language and Literacy Training
RiteCare partners provide early language and literacy training for preschool-age children in selected communities. These RiteCare partners do not provide speech therapy but will make referrals for children who have speech-language problems.
Graduate Scholarship Assistance
The Foundation awards graduate-level scholarships in speech-language pathology. The scholarships are awarded, on a competitive basis, to second year Master’s Degree students attending either the University of Northern Colorado or the University of Colorado at Boulder. Since 2003 88 students have received $5,000 RiteCare scholarships.
