April 2011 Clinic Director's Message

During the month of February we completed 235 treatment hours, including 11 new screenings.  We are currently providing speech and language disorders services to 51 children.  Five children were discharged and three children were added for services, leaving a total of 107 children on the waiting list.  Given the increase in the number of children on the waiting list who need our services, we are continuing to group children for treatment, as appropriate.
The clinicians were delighted to see the article about our clinic in The Gilroy Dispatch, written by Kat Teraji, and asked that I pass on their thanks:  “Thank you to everyone who helped coordinate the article to showcase our clinic.  The families that we serve appreciate what the members of the San Jose Scottish Rite do for them!”
I would like to thank and commend Rachel, Angela and Sharon for their excellent work with the children receiving our services.
The Foundation Board continues to investigate avenues through which we may help our clinic reduce the waiting list. 
There are still a few items that we could use for the clinic, including vertical blinds, pictures, and a desktop computer to be used by the children being treated.  If you would like to donate any of these items or to help the clinic in some other way, please contact the Scottish Rite office or me.

Durward C. Ayre, 32° KCCH Clinic Director
