John

Our Stories

John was diagnosed with bilateral sensorineural hearing loss at birth during his newborn hearing screening. In 2017, John’s parents enrolled him in Clarke Birth to Age Three Program 

“From the time John was 15 months old, the Clarke team supported, taught, encouraged, believed in and loved John,” says Melissa, John’s mother. “They helped him reach and surpass so many of his listening and spoken language goals and prepared him for his transition to kindergarten.” 

In 2021, John graduated from Clarke’s Preschool Program where he learned to listen and talk. John is an active kindergarten student who enjoys listening to music, reading stories, going to the museum, camping, horseback riding, swimming, riding on amusement park rides—and so much more. 

“Our family will always be grateful for Clarke’s expertise and for preparing John for his academic journey,” notes Melissa. “Even as he starts school in a new building, in a new town, and with new friends, Clarke’s teachers will be there to help and guide him every step of the way.”
