About Our Clinic
The Great Falls Scottish Rite Childhood Language Disorders Clinic was established in 1992 and one of nearly 170 Scottish 'Rite Care' Centers throughout the country and the first Rite Care Clinic in Montana. We strive to provide you and your family exceptional service and a great deal of personal attention. We measure our success by the improvement in the quality of life of the little people and families we serve.
The Clinic provides services to infants, toddlers and preschool-age children who exhibit speech and language delays.
Call the clinic at . A case history form/ parent questionnaire will be mailed and after we receive the completed form an appointment will be scheduled. A physician's referral is not required.
The clinic is open the full calendar year, Monday thru Friday, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm.
All services including evaluation and therapy are provided FREE of charge to all families. Tax deductible donations are gladly accepted.
Through gathering background information, observation, play and structured testing, a speech-language pathologist helps to determine your child’s strengths and weaknesses in the areas of speech and language and recommends an appropriate course of treatment. Parents meet with the evaluating speech therapist to discuss findings and recommendations. A written report is also prepared.
Speech and Language Therapy
Following a diagnostic evaluation, your child may be enrolled at the clinic for therapy. Therapy sessions are tailored to your child's individual needs. Parents participate or observe sessions and receive information and materials to work with their child at home. Therapy sessions are usually once per week for thirty minutes.
Our clinicians are trained to provide feeding intervention for children with developmental, sensory and/or motor feeding challenges.
Consistent attendance and parent/caregiver observation of all sessions are mandatory.
The Clinic is funded by individual Scottish Rite member’s gifts; private donations & memorials; charitable foundation grants; wills & bequests; and our annual Spaghetti Dinner/Silent Auction & Travel Raffle fundraisers. We do not bill insurance or Medicaid.
