CALIFORNIA-HAWAII ELKS MAJOR PROJECT INC
April 15, 2011

We adopted our child when he was 5 years old. He had a repaired cleft lip and an unrepaired cleft palate. We applied to California-Hawaii Elks Major Project to get our child speech services. We waited until his palate was repaired and healed for the services to begin.

We have been delighted with the results. Our child started out with very low language scores and obvious articulation problems. In the few years he has been receiving services his language scores have reached almost age level and his articulation is excellent. He is learning to self-correct his speech to become more independent.

Scheduling the weekly services can be a challenge when our work schedule changes. The therapist has been very flexible and sends work for us to do at home.

The Great!
