Chloe


May 6, 2014—“Before we came to Clarke, every single speech report we received for our daughter had the word delay in it. This year, the report was different. It said, Chloe’s on track. I can’t describe how happy I was to read those words.

Within a year of coming to Clarke, Chloe has become a completely different person. She started out very timid and anxious with new people, and in new situations she would often hide behind one of her parents or sit and observe other children playing rather than engage. Today, she is outgoing, strong, and able to communicate and advocate for herself. In the classroom, she is known to be a bit of a teacher’s pet and a social queen bee. And when asked about her implants, she’s very happy to explain how they work and how they help her hear. Clarke’s teachers, classroom assistants, speech therapists, and administration have all demonstrated tremendous dedication and personal attention. I can’t thank everyone enough for what they did for our family and for Chloe’s future.”
