The San Francisco-Burlingame Scottish Rite Childhood Language Center's mission is to provide free services for children five to eighteen years of age with speech, language, and literacy challenges. Our center is a philanthropy of the Scottish Rite Freemasons and was established in 1970. Children who receive our services come primarily from San Francisco County, but also from San Mateo and Marin Counties.
Our goal is to improve our client’s communication abilities and help them to lead meaningful, productive, and fulfilling lives - both academically and socially.
We give priority to low-income families. We mainly serve children with mild-moderate deficits who are unable to qualify for services in the public schools. We do not serve children with behavioral problems or those with global developmental or cognitive delays. All children must comply with the center’s up to date vaccination requirements.
