What we do. Why we do it.
Scottish Rite Masons began their commitment to the cause of helping children with language disorders more than twenty-five years ago. Since that time 170 Scottish Rite Centers have been located throughout the Southern Jurisdiction. These centers are staffed by speech-language pathologists and other trained personnel.
Children which might have remained educationally handicapped for a lifetime can now talk, read and lead useful lives. Miracles can happen and with skillful evaluations and treatment, miracles are happening in the Scottish Rite Treatment Centers all over America.
Our centers are committed to helping children who are exhibiting problems with language development or whose academic progress is being affected by delays in spoken or written language. These children exhibit normal intelligence and demonstrate the potential to achieve. Their delays are not caused by such other primary disabilities as severe as emotional problems, deafness, blindness, or mental retardation.
