Clinic Director's Message (December, 2010)

Our San Jose Scottish Rite Children’s Language Disorders Clinic helped 56 children in October, completing over 242 treatment hours including seven screenings.  One child was discharged from treatment and three new children were added from the waiting list.  I’m sorry to report that we still have 91 children on that list, awaiting our help.
However, I am happy to report that all of the new clinic training materials ordered earlier this fall have been received.  The clinicians have already started to use these more advanced methods in working with the children. 
We continue to explore avenues in hopes that we will soon be able to increase our clinician staff and help more kids.  Your donations are always greatly appreciated and help to reduce the financial burden on the Foundation. 
We are always looking for volunteers to do some work to spruce up the clinic.  The clinic could also use new set of vertical blinds and another computer.  If you are interested in helping with a project and/or donating some needed items, please contact me. 
I would like to invite you and your families to attend the annual Clinic Children’s Christmas Party on Saturday, December 4th from 11:00 AM until 3:00 PM.  We will have games and activities for kids as well as refreshments – and I have it on very good authority that Santa Claus plans to make an appearance!
On behalf of the Clinic Staff, I would like to wish you and your families a happy and safe holiday season. 

Durward C. Ayre
Clinic Director
