Clarke Announces New Preschool Classroom in Orlando


January 6, 2017—Clarke Schools for Hearing and Speech is proud to announce the opening of a new preschool classroom, which will serve children ages two to four who are deaf or hard of hearing and use listening and spoken language in the Orlando/Central Florida region. Clarke’s program in Jacksonville, FL has been providing vital services to children and families for nearly 20 years, and Clarke is pleased to now expand these direct services to reach a wider geography within the state.

This auxiliary classroom pilot program, housed at the Winter Park Presbyterian Church in Winter Park, FL, was made possible in part by funds allocated through the Florida Department of Health and the Florida Department of Education. Clarke is one of only a few schools in Florida offering services provided by Certified Listening and Spoken Language Specialists (LSLS). Clarke welcomed its first students to the new classroom this week.
