Since 2017 The Children’s League has operated the free Scottish Rite Early Childhood Language Disorders Clinic, “Rite Care”, in Oakland, Maryland serving children up to age 21.  This ensures that children from Garrett County and surrounding communities have access to free professional speech therapy near where they live, learn and play.

Through the generosity of Dr. Stephanie Sisler, The Children’s League is pleased to announce that the “Rite Care” speech clinic has moved and is now located at Dr. Sisler’s pediatric practice, Lovelight Pediatrics, LLC located at 607 Oakland Ave., Oakland, MD.  Dr. Sisler states “Our patients and families have been so well served by the services provided through the “Rite Care” speech clinic.  We are blessed with the opportunity to share our space!”

The Children’s League provides free speech evaluations and speech therapy for children up to age 21.  In addition to free speech therapy, The Children’s League also provides free orthopedic, cerebral palsy and cleft lip/palate clinics and physical therapy at its Cumberland, MD location.  All provided League services are FREE to children from birth to 21 who live in Maryland, West Virginia and Pennsylvania.

The Children’s League encourages physicians, professionals and parents to refer children who have questionable speech-language issues.  To refer a child to be evaluated at the Oakland “Rite Care” clinic or for any other provided service call The Children’s League at 301-759-5200 or email a request to
