About Our School | Philosophy

The focus of our educational programs is to develop spoken language and strong listening skills for children with a hearing loss to enable them to learn in a mainstream educational setting with their hearing peers. Intensive individualized instruction and family services are provided by credentialed teachers of the deaf and speech therapists with appropriate training and experience in auditory oral methods with children who are deaf or hard of hearing. We design programs for children using all modes of amplification – cochlear implants, hearing aids, bone conduction aids, and personal FM systems.

We believe skilled and experienced professionals are crucial to the successful communication development of infants, toddlers and young children with hearing loss. Our education programs are staffed by credentialed teachers of the deaf and speech therapists experienced in auditory oral instruction for infants and children who are deaf or hard of hearing. The education staff is committed to excellence in providing speech, language and auditory training for children with hearing loss and using all forms of personal amplification.

We believe that family involvement is key to each child’s success and the experienced staff works closely with each family providing training and resources to provide their child with good spoken language skills, ensuring access to education, and fostering advocacy skills.  Parent group meetings and activities are planned throughout the year to address topics of interest or special concerns in a supportive network. These meetings are open to all families receiving services through the educational programs.
