About Scottish Rite for Children
Recently celebrating its 100th year anniversary, Scottish Rite for Children is a world-renowned leader in the treatment of orthopedic conditions such as scoliosis, clubfoot, hand differences, hip disorders, sports injuries and fractures, as well as certain related arthritic and neurological disorders and learning disorders, such as dyslexia. The mission is to provide world class medical care in an outstanding child-centered environment. That is why NRC Health has awarded SRC Excellence in Patient Experience status for highest overall patient satisfaction ratings. Every staff member in the building participates in the mission creating an extraordinary culture that has led to SRC being a four-time winner of the "Top 100 Workplace" by Dallas Morning News.
The Luke Waites Center for Dyslexia & Learning Disorders is named for Dr. Lucius Waites, a pediatric neurologist and a tireless advocate for children with dyslexia. He established the Center for Dyslexia in 1965 within the otherwise orthopedic-centric Scottish Rite hospital. He brought Scottish Rite onto the world stage hosting the World Federation of Neurology in 1968 where the first consensus definition of dyslexia was formulated. It is his vision for interdisciplinary collaboration, innovation, and service to the community that continues at the Center today.
