Welcome to the Charles E. and Geneva S. Scott Scottish Rite Communication Disorders Clinic

Mask policy:  Our clinic is following CDC and Appalachian State guidelines which require that patients and families wear masks in all common areas and therapy spaces within the clinic.


The Clinic is a part of the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences in the Beaver College of Health Sciences at Appalachian State University. We serve people of all ages from the Boone region.

Through the generous support of the North Carolina Scottish Rite Masonic Foundation, our Clinic is able to provide services to children with language and reading disabilities regardless of their family's ability to pay. The faculty, staff, and students involved in the operation of the Clinic wish to express their appreciation to the Foundation for this support. Each year the support multiplies as our epartment of Rehabilitation Sciences trains more and more students to become service providers for children throughout the state. We estimate that we have trained over 1600 speech-language pathologists during that time.
