CHILDHOOD LANGUAGE DISORDERS
The Scottish Rite Foundation of Colorado (RiteCare) annually provides grants to ten speech-language partners. 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
Treasure Chest Program: the advancement of early childhood learning and language skills serving children and families in low income and underserved communities.
The Treasure Chest program supports nearly 400 children every year.
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.
