Our Mission

Clarke provides children who are deaf and hard of hearing with the listening, learning and spoken language skills they need to succeed. Annually, more than 800 children and their families benefit from programs and services at our five campus locations: Boston, Jacksonville, New York City, Northampton and Philadelphia.

 

 

Clarke impacts the lives of children and adults through educational and early childhood programs, hearing services, mainstream services, research, curriculum development and the teachers and professionals trained by Clarke who take their special skills to all parts of the world.

Today, the possibilities for children who are deaf and hard of hearing are greater than ever before. We work with families and professionals to ensure that every child has the chance to reach their full potential.

About Our Pennsylvania Campuses

Clarke’s Bryn Mawr and Philadelphia campuses serve children from birth to age 6 through early intervention and preschool programs. We provide mainstreaming and speech and language services to children of all ages. We offer a unique learning environment designed to maximize each child’s development, while building their self-confidence and preparing them for success beyond Clarke. Clarke partners with parents to provide the skills, knowledge and support they need to help their children reach their full potential. Children and families come to our campuses from Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.

Facilities

Clarke's Bryn Mawr campus is located 10 miles west of Philadelphia and our Philadelphia campus is minutes from the center of the city. Classrooms utilize sound field amplification systems and are designed for the unique acoustical needs of children with hearing loss.

Staff

Clarke’s Pennsylvania campuses are led by director Judith S. Sexton M.S., C.E.D., LSLS Cert. AVEd. and an expert staff of teachers of the deaf and speech-language pathologists, all of whom have Masters degrees in their related field.
