CID is a school where children who are deaf and hard of hearing learn to listen, talk and read without using sign language. We prepare children to participate and succeed in their neighborhood schools. Generous private support makes us affordable for all. We serve children from birth to age 12.
Their work truly changes people's lives by making sure that they are capable of assimilating into society and can have all of the opportunities other people have.
Learning to communicate is a whole new ball-game for the deaf, as may be intuitive, but certainly everyone who has known a deaf person will really understand. As a child, it is easier to learn to adaptive techniques, and it's critical that work starts as young as possible - so that adult hood can be as productive and happy as possible.
