I am a supporter of Santa Barbara RiteCare because of the profound effect this amazing therapy has on the lives of young children with speech and language disorders, as well as the huge difference the therapy continues to make as children grow and further their education. The incredible dedication and skills the therapists provide to children and their families has helped hundreds of children become capable and confident communicators and to achieve academic success. There truly is no better way to help children and our community than by supporting Santa Barbara RiteCare.
