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.

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 ritecarereception@umt.edu to apply!

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, MOSSAIC, and SPARK.

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.

Diagnostic Evaluations

The DeWit RiteCare Clinic offers comprehensive evaluations to assess speech, voice, swallowing, language, and cognitive skills. Prior to treatment, clients are evaluated and observed to determine communication skills, abilities, and difficulties. After the assessment process has been completed, a conference is scheduled to discuss the results and recommendations with the client and/or the client's family/caregivers.

Therapeutic Intervention

Following diagnostic evaluation(s), the client may be enrolled for therapy. The therapy sessions are designed to meet the individual needs of each client. Therapy includes training and support for families and/or caregivers to continue to work with the client at home.
