The Hearing School of the Southwest has become an awesome school for the cochlear implant and extremely hard of hearing children of the Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex. Our staff is so dedicated to helping these children in a loving, family atmosphere and the results have been so incredible. To see them enter the school with nothing and grow to talking and responding to others by kindergarten is so fabulous to all of the staff, the Board of Directors and the families of the children.

I am a caregiver for a student at this school. I attend every class with him and enjoy every minute of it. The way they help these kids is amazing! They have great resources and big hearts! I see a huge difference in his communication, and the way he responds to other children. They are great at what they do!

My son has severe hearing loss. We were attending a public school that was not providing adequate teaching or therapy for my son to reach his education goals. The Hearing School of the Southwest offered us a 100% scholarship to attend (we could not afford private school for him). Through the teaching and therapy of the Hearing School my son's speaking and comprehension has improved immensely. We are very grateful for to have such great people in our lives!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the relationships my son gets to build with his teachers and peers!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

the director, and teachers.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide therapy and education to the many children with hearing impairment that go without. They could teach them to speak!!

Ways to make it better...

they had more funding to get us into school earlier.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding. It seem they are only funded year to year...and the funding is very limited and they don't know how much will be available.

One thing I'd also say is that...

their building and property needs a lot of work!

I couldn't believe it when I first heard the results...your baby has failed the newborn hearing screening. I felt like the world had come crashing down around me....that was almost 3 years ago. Today, I am SO excited to see the progress my daughter makes each day with her language and even social development. The Hearing School of the Southwest has played a HUGE part in her progress. They have also helped us to realize that we are not in this alone...

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my daughter's progress. She has gone from this little girl that could not speak and liked mostly to play alone to a child that is growing her vocabulary each day and loves to play with other kids! Her confidence level has sky-rocketed!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Grow it! In order to do that, they need more money! With more money and resources, they could hire more people and rach many more families that need their services!

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing the progress my daughter has made! She could not have done it without the school.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

the kind that TRULY care. They are very experienced as well as sincere. They go above and beyond to insure that every child receives everything they need. They are like a 2nd family.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

reach MANY more families with children with hearing disabilities. They could offer many more services and provide them more often.

Ways to make it better...

there were more staff to help do all the work that needs to be done to get the day care up and running.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

lack of staff

The Hearing School of the Southwest is an incredible program that I am so proud to be affiliated with. HSSW fills a huge need in the DFW area, providing a spoken language option for children, while many public schools don't offer that approach. The school provides support to families from birth through the elementary years. We are like a big family at HSSW!!

My son attended this school for a year before it moved locations. We absolutely loved it! The staff was awesome and really helped build the foundation he needed before transitioning into public school. We were so sad when they switched locations. Everyone at this school loves children and wants every child to be successful. I highly recommend this school to any parent that has a deaf or hard of hearing child.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The progress my son made in his year with the school. It far exceeded our expectations. They worked so hard with him and it showed.

Ways to make it better...

have several schools in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

How loving and caring the staff is.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Awesome! They were so knowledgeable of kids with hearing loss and loved working with those kids.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Expand and have several locations.

Ways to make it better...

It was not so far from where we lived.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

being a non-profit and allowing the students that can't afford the school to still be able to attend.

One thing I'd also say is that...

This school it the best deaf/hard of hearing school in the Dallas area.

My son attended this school for 3 1/2 years. He worked intensely with their staff and speech language pathologist and sent from having about 10 words to being able to attend a mainstream 1st grade classroom. Small class sizes, highly trained staff, with a passion to teach hearing impaired child is what make this school amazing. They gave us our child back and gave my him the ability to be successful in whatever he desires to do in the future. HSSW is an amazing school and I highly recommend it to others.

My 3 year old son has received much needed speech therapy and education to support his language development since he was only 3 weeks old. Cochlear implants have given him the ability to perceive sound, but the hearing school gave him the skills to use sound meaningfully. The teachers and therapists are passionate about the children on an individual level, not just as a classroom or group of kids. The success of our children is a direct result of this one on one attention. The devastating reality of learning that your child is deaf is a hopeless place to be in. This school has given back what was taken away...a child who can hear, speak, and even sing songs! He isn't quite 3 years old but can sing the alphabet, count and recite colors! This is a gift that every family of hearing impaired children should have access to.

The Great!
