Wee Care Center

Wee Care had a child who qualified for Speech Therapy but his parents were not able to get him to the services. Wee Care’s Program and Education Director contacted Tri-County Educational Service Center and was able to have the Speech Language Pathologist come to Wee Care when the child was in attendance so he could get the assistance he needed.

Wee Care recently started a Sign Language class. One day at pick-up a parent was talking to her child and the Sign Language teacher about how she was able to use some of the signs her son taught her with a patient she had that day. The child had a huge smile on his face.
