Director of Clinical Services
We are pleased to announce the promotion of Ms. Amy Allen, O.T. into the position of Clinical Director. Ms. Allen has over ten years of experience as an Occupational Therapist here at the Center, and has many creative ideas for improving and expanding the Center’s services.
Already Ms. Allen has developed relationships with the Meredith-Dunn School and Providence Childcare and Preschool to provide occupational and speech therapy on site at those locations. To better serve the children on our waiting list, Ms. Allen recently hired an additional full time speech therapist Ms. Sandra Burnette, as well as, Ms. Lindsey Noonan, a part time speech therapist .
Ms. Lauren Smith, another long term employee of the Center and caretaker of Remi, our therapy dog, has also been promoted. In her new capacity as Office Manager, Ms. Smith will coordinate the day to day operations of the Center.
Scottish Rite Provides Special Grant
Last fall the Center received a special $85,000 grant from the Louisville Scottish Rite Foundation. For over twenty years, the Louisville Scottish Rite Foundation had provided ongoing support for the Easter Seals’ Childhood Language Program. Their recent special onetime grant was given to assist the Center in its transition as it became a local non-profit stand alone facility. The grant helped underwrite the operating costs of the Center as it obtained its new license, and contracts with Medicaid, Passport, and other third-party payers.
The Center’s Board of Directors, staff, and client are very appreciative of the Scottish Rite’s understanding and support as we open a new chapter in our service to children with special needs.
