We teach children who are deaf or hard of hearing to listen and talk.

Building the listening, learning and spoken language skills needed to help infants, children, teens and their families succeed

With Clarke’s expertise and today’s technology, there are no limits for children who are deaf or hard of hearing.

It’s possible for children born with hearing loss—even a profound hearing loss—to develop listening and spoken language skills comparable to their peers with typical hearing.
