The Grunewald-Blitz Clinic and Workshop was endowed in 1995 by Ms. Abbey Grunewald to honor the memory of her grandson, Nicholas Blitz, who had cerebral palsy and dysarthria. Each year, the GBC evaluates and treats hundreds of children, offering a communication lifeline to Tucson and Southern Arizona Communities. The clinic is equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation in speech-language pathology and audiology. The environment is fun and functional, accommodating individual and group therapy sessions. The workshops provide important information on the assessment, treatment, and management of pediatric speech, language, and feeding difficulties or differences in children and adolescents.
