School Program

The School Program at Child’s Voice offers a busy, full-day program for children ages 3-8 years old. All students have hearing loss and utilize their cochlear implant or hearing aid to gain access to sound.

  • Self-Advocacy is taught to all students to increase their understanding of being deaf, their devices and what to expect when they transition to their home schools.
  • To support our students in development of appropriate behavior and social/emotional skills, the School Program utilizes the “Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports” (PBIS) Program. PBIS offers universal behavior reinforcement focused on positive feedback, appropriate consequences and creating a safe, respectful and responsible environment for all students.
