Extraordinary Children

We've had the pleasure to serve

I am very pleased to have my daughters at this center. Not only do they learn a lot, but they also enjoy coming to the center. The center helps my daughters to comprehend and write better. I have noticed a big change since they have started participating in the center. They have improved a lot. I am very happy that they are part of this successful program. I really thank you a lot for being here.

Big Improvements

Scottish Rite helped my daughter, Maura, to speak clearly.  Not only did they teach her the technique and exercises to improve her speech, but they also provided me with the tools and techniques to help her at home.

Speech Improvement

As a speech-language pathologist, Jim has a highly specialized knowledge of communication differences that sets him apart from teachers and staff at tutoring centers. Jim has a great approach with children. He engages with my daughter in a way that challenges and stimulates her, gently prompting her to practice new skills in a friendly and supportive environment. With feedback from Jim, we have learned better strategies for handling our daughter's communication challenges.


Friendly and supportive

Jim has taught me the importance of speech and has given me the confidence to speak, which has made learning fun at school. I used to be a very quiet student who did not talk very much. Working with Jim has allowed me the opportunity to discover and use new words, to try poetry, and even to appreciate creative writing. I am even writing my own autobiography and making a timeline of all the important events in my life.

I also have developed an appreciation for reading about history. I can remember many random historical events and love talking to Jim about the past, even though it was before I was born.

Our daughter has benefited from receiving speech and language therapy from Jim Cartwright. She has expanded her vocabulary, strengthened her comprehension skills and has become an articulate speaker. Above all we have noticed a boost in her confidence when she is communicating her thoughts to others. We are grateful for everything that the Scottish Rite Childhood Language Center has provided for our daughter.

Boost in confidence

The work being done at the San Francisco-Burlingame Childhood Language Center is an absolute gift to the children whom it supports. We have worked with each of the specialists at the center and each one is truly amazing! The amount of support both of my children are receiving has shown in the progress they achieved, not only academically, but also personally. The growth they have made has presented itself in the classroom, which flowed into their self-confidence and self-esteem. One of our boys went from struggling to find his words in oral and written form to becoming elected as a Student Council Officer at school. We are so grateful to the people who work at and support this wonderful and much-needed facility. The children definitely are benefiting from such a great program!
