From the Clinic (April 2018)

Max is an athletic, easygoing nine year old boy who has been attending the Scottish Rite Childhood Language Disorders Clinic to remediate /r/.  His parents had seen a number of SLPs to help Max with his speech and he had been in speech therapy for a long time before the Scottish Rite accepted him into the program. Max has been at the Scottish Rite for about a year and is now ready to be discharged from services as he has met his goals! His family’s dedication to Max’s treatment program helped Max progress quickly. His mother reported, “We have all been a part of Max’s treatment as Max had homework he had to do each day, and sometimes we made it into a family game. They [the family] are all excited Max is nearing his goals as they have seen how hard he has been working.” His parents are very proud of him and are thankful for the services that Max has received, “Seeing him finally progress has been most rewarding. We also had a great experience with his therapist, Rachel. It was much easier to go to speech after we made the switch to this clinic. Our experience here has been great! If we were unable to make a session, Rachel would try to fit us in later in the week. The emphasis on practicing everyday really helped with his progression. He got along well with Rachel and enjoyed his sessions with her. I would definitely recommend this clinic to others because it wasn’t until we began [at] this clinic that we finally began to see progress with his speech.” The clinic is very proud of Max and his hard work and that of his family too! Great job, Max!
