Deaf education

Today, even children with profound hearing loss can learn to listen and talk through oral deaf education. Oral deaf education puts families first and prepares children for success in the mainstream at an early age. By combining today's sophisticated hearing technologies with intensive early intervention, oral deaf education builds a child's confidence and life skills by teaching children to listen and talk. There are many institutes going for the deaf education. One of the institutes is at the Moog Center for Deaf Education we teach deaf children to talk. And we teach others to do it, too. We are located in St. Louis, Missouri and our Center consists of an Oral School for children ages 3 to 9, a Family School for children birth to 3 years and their families, and Professional Education and Outreach Programs through which we share our successful techniques with other professionals. Its highly individualized instruction is tailored to each child's present level of achievement and learning style.

Prospects for small kids

Children are grouped according to their abilities in each subject area, including speech, language, auditory skills and academics. Our teachers know how to gear instruction to be at just the right level for maximum challenge and maximum success. This is not only highly motivating for our children but results in their having high self esteem. Their children learn how to talk and understand when others talk to them. They also learn the same subjects as hearing children in preschool and early elementary school. Our goal is for our children to enter the mainstream whenever they demonstrate the skills necessary for competing successfully with their hearing age mates. This may be anywhere from kindergarten to fifth grade.


Deaf education in this country has enabled us in the deaf community to take our rightful role as important contributors to U.S. society. It is now time we help those in less developed countries to reach their full potential. The deaf education program is designed to provide students with the coursework and field experiences necessary to be licensed as an Intervention Specialist in the area of Deaf Education. The Deaf Education Intervention Specialist license is valid for teaching learners from ages 3 through 21, and grades pre-kindergarten through 12, who have been identified with a hearing impairment.
