A free clinic in Duluth is making space to expand.

The Scottish Rite Childhood Language Disorders Clinic helps kids with autism and other communication problems. The clinic is free and runs on donations.

Kurt Erickson, a Scottish Rite Foundation board member, said they have a long waiting list. So on Thursday, they tore down the building next door to make room for a possible expansion.

"Of course working with the city of Duluth and with the permits and regulations and zoning issues to make sure we do this right," he said, "so that it number one benefits the kids in the best capacity that we can, and have a facility that's going to actually really take care of the kids well. And then something that fits in well with the community here."

Erickson said the Scottish Rite Foundation bought the building 12 years ago. There are no definitive plans for the space yet.
