Our goal with this program is to reach individuals in rural areas who would not otherwise be able to receive therapy, whether thats because of their location or funding or lack of insurance, said Laura Moody, speech and language pathology lecturer and RiteCare Clinic supervisor.

The Department of Communication Disorders partners with Scottish Rite of Nebraska to operate the RiteCare Clinic in the College of Education with capabilities of providing teletherapy to individuals across Nebraska.
