Helping Children Communicate


We provide licensed speech, language, literacy, and audiological services to children, with fees based on their family’s ability to pay.

Center Based Services

The Scottish Rite Childhood Language Center works with most pediatric communication disorders including speech, language, stuttering, voice, apraxia, hearing and auditory processing. We provide individual therapy sessions, consultation, and evaluation services.

Since our founding, in 1991, we have helped 10,763 children and provided families in need with over $2,924,129 in scholarships.

The Center is open for appointments from Monday through Thursday 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM, and Friday 8:00 AM – Noon.


Across the greater Richmond area, the Scottish Rite Childhood Language Center provides:
In-service training for teachers.

Speech, language, and auditory screenings at local preschools.

Group literacy sessions at preschools.
