Mission: Low cost or free speech and hearing screening and treatment for children.
Programs: The children's advisory network provided individual speech therapy to over 65 children last year of which 80% were medicaid or chp+. The others were private pay with reduced payments for over 70% for all of our clients. Our team screened over 1350 children at a 75% reduced rate or free rate at local preschools, private schools and head start. We also provided free educational training on hearing health and speech disorders to over 850 children and teachers. These free workshops provided free educational bookmarks and ear protection. The agency donated gas, food and rent coupon cards to 20% of our clients in need of financial aid. We donated volunteer time for screenings, workshops, parent consultations and other community activities to serve the community.
