Formerly Clarke School for the Deaf / Center for Oral Education in 2010 we changed our name to Clarke Schools for Hearing and Speech. This change reflects our distinct mission of teaching children who are deaf and hard of hearing how to listen and talk using the latest technology; and it also highlights our multiple locations – which continue to grow! Our new logo is a vibrant mark celebrating the growth and success of Clarke children. Each day we watch and listen as they blossom – gaining confidence and acquiring the ability to reach their full potential.

Clarke is an auditory/oral program which means that we teach children to listen and speak rather than use sign language. at Clarke children use cochlear implants and hearing aids to maximize their access to sound and our specially trained teachers audiologists and speech language pathologists help them develop listening literacy and spoken language skills to maximize their learning. Our goal is to prepare children to succeed in mainstream classrooms alongside their hearing peers. Because of increased newborn hearing screenings and early intervention services many children who come to Clarke are ready to mainstream as early as kindergarten.
There are many different schools of thought about educating children who are deaf and hard of hearing. at Clarke we recognize that there is no single approach that is right for every child. We provide parents with the tools they need to understand their childs hearing loss make informed choices about educational options and find the path that is right for their family.
