Getting Ready For The Mainstream
The School Program, located at our Wood Dale site, is certified by the Illinois State board of Education. We offer a busy, full-day program for children ages 3-8 years old. Students move between small and large group classrooms and focus on literacy, vocabulary, math, and social sciences as well as social-emotional learning and self advocacy.
A Safe, Respectful, Responsible Environment
Our students develop appropriate behavior and social/emotional skills through the Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports (PBIS) Program. PBIS offers universal behavior reinforcement focused on positive feedback.
Our STREAMM program is a wide-ranging initiative to bring interactive learning to the classroom with the help of many northern Illinois partners. STREAMM at Child’s Voice stands for Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Art, Math, and Music.
RM System Offers Best Access To Sound
The Remote Microphone (RM) systems used in classrooms are made up of two parts: a receiver attached to a child’s hearing device, and a transmitter/microphone worn by the teacher. The teacher’s voice is picked up by the microphone and wirelessly sent to the child’s receivers.
How Has Deaf Education Changed?
Due to vast improvements in audiology, hearing-device technology, and speech therapy, today looks very different from how children with hearing loss were taught 50 years ago. Hear from a Child’s Voice teacher who has witnessed these changes, learn about a device that counts the number of words, a child says, and read about pediatric audiology.
