Project ELLA (Early Language and Literacy for All) includes
FREE SPEECH AND LANGUAGE THERAPY
FOR ALL CHILDREN BIRTH TO AGE 5
provided at the CHSC University Circle office.
Why is Project ELLA important?
Talking and listening skills are key to a child’s successful communication and literacy development. These skills are critical for a child’s readiness to start school. In fact, a child’s talking and listening skills in the first 5 years of life can predict how successful they will be into adulthood. By removing financial barriers to speech, language and learning for all children birth to age 5, Cleveland Hearing & Speech Center launched Project ELLA as a way to ensure each child in Cleveland has every advantage for a bright future.
