Preschool students receive instruction from a certified Teacher of the Deaf, who has received specific training in working with children with cochlear implants, hearing aids, and Baha’s as well as being highly experienced in the management of hearing aids and FM systems. Students also receive individual speech-language therapy services from speech-language pathologists. The ideal classroom size of 8-9 children provides a low ratio (often 1:1) among adults and students in the classroom and ensures an intimate, child-centered school experience. Small group language intensive instruction is designed to prepare children for a successful transition to their neighborhood school. Curriculum is aligned to state kindergarten readiness standards.
Normal hearing peers who model age-appropriate speech and language for students with hearing loss may also be enrolled in both the Preschool and the Toddler programs.
