As a member of the Rite Care Network of speech-language clinics and our ongoing affiliation with the Scottish Rite, and, because of the research done through the UA Dept. of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences, the school’s enrollment is limited to:
Children with normally developing language skills; AND
Children with developmental language disorder (DLD), phonological disorder, or speech delay/disorder.
We advocate for all young children, but we do not provide a comprehensive program to meet all special education needs.
