Friends For Life

Our graduates go on to do great things

For 25 years, we have watched graduates go on to their mainstream schools, attend college, continue with their education, get jobs – and even go to the Deaflympics! Alumni keep in touch with us and with each other, and many return to Child’s Voice to visit, volunteer, teach, and guide the organization on our Board of Directors.

We have created Google classrooms on preparing for college, transitional times, playing sports, and more to help families get ready for life after Child's Voice.

Our First Graduate: Adam Ballent

Child’s Voice opened in 1996 in a church in Elmhurst with six students. In 1998 Adam Ballent became our first graduate. Click on the video below to hear Adam congratulate long-time Executive Director Michele Wilkins on her retirement.

Meet up on Facebook

The Child’s Voice School Alumni Facebook page is a closed, moderated group where alumni can connect with former classmates and share stories and experiences as people with hearing loss.

Sharing their stories, sharing their time

Over the last 25 years, alumni have progressed from elementary to high school, into college, and now into the workforce. Child’s Voice’s friends and supporters love to hear from graduates as speakers at events or meetings. Alumni are also volunteers at events and share advice during seminars and gatherings. We look forward to more alumni taking leadership roles on our committees and boards. After all, we know what they are capable of!
