Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The Oakland RiteCare Childhood Language Center's mission is to provide free speech, language, and reading therapy to children and young adults ages 3 to 20. We conduct evaluations, provide therapy and parent consultations, and use innovative neuroscience-based interventions to improve academic achievement and social development.
Located on beautiful Lake Merritt, our center has 5 therapy rooms, a computer lab, and a play room, a lobby, and two bathrooms. We have a large parking lot. Our center team includes two dedicated and caring professionals - an educational therapist and a speech/language therapist - with a combined 30 years of experience and a talented and resourceful administrative assistant. We mostly conduct 1:1 50-minute sessions for traditional speech/language therapy and neuroplasticity programs such as Interactive Metronome and Fast ForWord. We also run small groups of 3-4 students to work on critical thinking skills critical for academic and daily life that focus on auditory processing, self-advocacy, and learning strategies. Our clinic board includes both Masons, parents, and community members. We also are dedicated to providing educational programs for parents and professionals regarding many aspects of special education through workshops in the beautiful Oakland Scottish Temple.
