Auditory Oral Program
In our Auditory Classrooms, we focus on maximizing each child’s auditory, listening language, speech, and literacy abilities. Spoken English is used throughout the day as the language of instruction in the classroom. To gain access to sound, most children in this program use cochlear implants or digital hearing aids. With the latest technology and the support of our experienced and highly trained teachers, speech language pathologists, and audiologist, students realize their full potential in becoming oral communicators.
As a supplement, children have the opportunity to learn American Sign Language through fun hands-on activities. This gives children the language tools to successfully communicate with everyone on campus. The benefits of learning to communicate in both English and American Sign Language has proven to be very beneficial to students.
American Sign Language/English (Written and Spoken)
The Bilingual Program is an environment that embraces both English (spoken/written) and American Sign Language. Taught by teachers who are native users of each language, children engage in language rich experiences with teachers who can effectively expand and promote American Sign Language and English (spoken and written) language learning. The benefits of learning to communicate in both English and American Sign Language has proven to be very beneficial to students.
This team develops students’ abilities in both languages through the coordination of lessons and activities.
