Creating lasting change in the lives of Treasure Valley families.

Our mission: The Learning and Language Center at Calico provides year-round speech/language therapy, occupational therapy, social skills and academic readiness groups to prepare young children for future academic success. We teach hearing impaired, low income, at risk, under-served, under-insured, and refugee children the skills needed to fully participate on the same level as their peers when they go to school.
