September 2011 Clinic Director's Message

During the month of July, we completed 202 treatment hours, including 2 screenings.  Currently there are 56 children receiving speech and language services.  One child was discharged from treatment and two children were added from the waiting list.  111 children remain on the waiting list.  We have been continuing to group children for treatment, as appropriate, in order to help as many kids as possible during their summer break from school. 
We have some good news to report:  we have served 124 children during the first half of 2011 vs. 99 children during all of 2010, or an increase of 26 %.  This outstanding increase results from the exceptionally hard work of our clinicians, Angela, Rachel and Sharon.  My sincere thanks to each of them!
I would like to take this opportunity to wish Angela, who is on maternity leave, and her family well.  Angela plans to return to the Clinic in January 2012.  In the meantime, Jenna Mendonca, the San Jose State University graduate who completed an externship with us last year while a graduate student at SJSU, will be seeing Angela’s clients. 
Your San Jose Scottish Rite Childhood Language Clinic continues to need your financial support.  We exist to support our community and help as many children as we can. Please consider making a donation to the Clinic soon.
If you would like to assist the clinic by donating items or help in some other way, please contact the Scottish Rite office or me..

Respectfully,  Durward C. Ayre, 32° KCCH
Clinic Director
