Revi Graduates from Clarke’s Preschool Program with the Tools to Succeed 

Revi graduated from Clarke’s Preschool Program with the tools to succeed socially and academically, entering kindergarten at a mainstream school! Revi was diagnosed at birth with bilateral sensorineural hearing loss due to Connexin 26 and uses cochlear implants to access sound.

Revi started at Clarke when she was three months old and continued in Clarke’s Preschool Program at age three. “Clarke came into our lives when we weren’t sure of what to do, where to go or what life would look like,” said Revi’s mother Monique, “Clarke took us by the hand and guided us through the entire first five years of Revi’s life!”

Students in Clarke’s Preschool/Early Childhood Program learn from teachers of the deaf and speech-language pathologists in an engaging and supportive environment. Classroom activities are designed to enhance children’s listening, speech, language and pre-literacy skills while supporting their social, emotional cognitive, physical and creative development. Students also build the self-advocacy skills necessary to succeed in mainstream settings.

Revi put these skills into action at the beginning of kindergarten by teaching 25 classmates about her hearing loss and cochlear implants. “We owe our daughter’s excellent speech and advocacy skills to Clarke! To say Clarke is the reason Revi is so successful is an understatement. We are forever grateful to the amazing community of teachers at Clarke!”
