For many families, our Early Intervention Program is the first step in their baby’s journey with hearing loss.

Early Intervention (EI) provides the critical foundation of listening and spoken language skills to children ages birth through 3, including speech and language development, listening, and developmental play skills.

The School Program is a classroom-style, listening and spoken language program for children aged 3-8 where students receive an intensive education focused on language and auditory skill development as well as key classroom-style components and social interactions.

Properly working hearing devices mean each child has optimum access to speech and language both in group and classroom settings and in the home environment.

The Audiology Center provides services to children in our EI and School Programs, including diagnostic testing, evaluation, and device support. In addition to in-house students, our Audiology Center sees about 250 outside patients each year for infant testing or for hearing-device services to alumni (up to age 21).
