The Los Angeles Scottish Rite Childhood Language Center is a free service made possible by donations from members of the Scottish Rite Masonic fraternal organization. We receive no state or federal funding.

We provide speech, language and reading therapies to children ages three through eighteen who demonstrate a speech and/or language disorder. We are the only organization in Los Angeles, apart from the public schools, that offers free speech, language and reading therapy.

In the private sector, the services we provide would cost thousands of dollars. In the Los Angeles area, the fee for a private speech and language assessment ranges from $350 to $1,200 depending on the age of the child and the situation. Often, there is a separate fee for report writing of $300 or more. Educational therapy/reading assessments are also usually priced in this range. We provide both for free.

Therapy for language and/or reading disorders ranges from $120 to $175 an hour. Some of our clients receive therapy twice a week for up to eighteen months. That’s over $17,000 of free services!

These valuable services make a profound difference in the lives of the children we help. For more information about the services we offer, please visit us at or contact us directly at 323.936.2153
