Deaf and Hearing Impaired

CID’s mission is to teach children who are deaf and hard of hearing to listen, talk, read and succeed. We partner with families and collaborate with universities, educators and other professionals worldwide to help children communicate to achieve to their fullest potential.

In-Services and Consultations

With early identification laws and the widespread use of digital hearing aids and cochlear implants, more children with hearing loss and deafness are learning to listen and to talk. This doesn’t happen automatically. It requires specialized educational techniques proven to help children use listening and spoken language to succeed in mainstream general educational settings.

CID’s goal is to help teachers and school administrators develop effective ways to meet the needs of children who are deaf or hard of hearing and their families. We offer customized consultations and in-services for public and private schools and school districts beginning or improving listening and spoken language educational programs. An educational support package from CID can also include guided classroom observations at the CID school and administrative consultations (in person or via Skype), customized to meet your professional needs.
