embers of the Scottish Rite Foundation presented a check for $5,000 to faculty and staff of the Truman State University Communication Disorders Program on Sept. 6.

Funds will be used specifically for the purchase of new diagnostic and therapy materials for the Truman RiteCare Early Literacy Lab. The mission of the lab is to facilitate literacy development in children who are at high risk for literacy problems. Assessment and intervention service for young children in the areas of speech, language, phonemic awareness and emergent literacy are provided through the Lab in conjunction with the Speech and Hearing Clinic. The primary philanthropy of the Scottish Rite Organization is the RiteCare Childhood Language Program, a program dedicated to combating childhood language disorders.
