Clinic Director's Message for June 2012

During the month of April, we completed 211 treatment hours, about 10 % more hours than in March.  A total of 53 children received speech and language therapy.  We also carried out one screening evaluation.  We added one child to our caseload and were able to decrease another child’s treatment from twice per week to once per week due to progress made.  
I have been asked what the phrase “screening evaluation” means.  An evaluation is conducted to determine if a child who exhibits speech and/or language delays or disorders is in need of our services.  If the determination is made that a child is not an appropriate candidate for therapy at our clilnic, we may refer his/her parents to another institution that may be of help. 
We continue to seek financial donations so that we may continue to provide excellent service to the community.  Although our services are free, running the clinic costs approximately $19,600 per month at our current level of service.  Therefore, your donations would be greatly appreciated.   
Thanks to each of you for your help for and support of our Clinic.
