DeWit RiteCare Speech, Language, and Hearing Clinic

We are temporarily short-staffed. Please be patient with us as it may take a bit longer than usual for us to respond.

At DeWit RiteCare, training future speech-language pathologists and serving our community are our goals, focusing on providing diverse, enriching clinical learning experiences that are equitable and inclusive.

At this time, we only accept new ongoing therapy patients in special circumstances based on student training needs. However, we are always happy to add clients to our email lists for specialty clinics, which do open their application processes for new clients throughout the year, depending on when clinics are scheduled. Specialty clinics include BSAP, YETI, and SPARK

SPARK (Speech, Phonology, and Articulation Remediation for Kids) clinic is currently accepting new clients for fall semester! SPARK clinic is group therapy in a preschool setting for kids ages 2-4 who are difficult to understand. Fall semester groups are Monday mornings for 2 hours. Please contact 406-243-2405 or to apply!

Please contact our clinic front desk at 406-243-2405 for assistance in obtaining a referral to a community clinic accepting new patients and/or to be added to any of our specialty clinics email lists.
