Reach Child and Youth Development Society looking to give the gift of speech

The society is hoping their $10,000 goal will support 20 more children in receiving speech therapy.

Reach Child and Youth Development Society is hoping to raise $10,000 this holiday season to give the gift of speech.

Reach, which offers services to children and families in Delta, Surrey and Langley, currently offers speech therapy to more than 60 kids. The society is hoping their $10,000 goal will support 20 more children in receiving speech therapy.

“The ability to communicate effectively with others is the very foundation of a child’s social, emotional and educational development,” the society said in the press release.

“Because learning is a cumulative process, difficulties early-on can have a cascading effect on the rest of a child’s life.”

Reach’s holiday campaign is currently underway. Those looking to donate can visit, Gift of Speech for more information.
