Review for CENTRAL INSTITUTE FOR THE DEAF ALUMNI ASSOCIATION, Saint Louis, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When we found out our son was deaf, we received immediate and comprehensive support from staff at CID. Staff worked with us during every step of assessing his hearing loss, preparing for cochlear implant surgery, educating us as parents about hearing loss, and teaching our son how to listen and speak. He's now turning 4 years old, and measures at or above average in all areas of development including language skills in comparison with hearing peers. His success can be attributed to the skilled, compassionate staff who work with him daily.

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

My profoundly deaf son (now aided with 2 cochlear implants) can listen, hear, speak and succeed like any 4 year old kid. This is truly amazing; not without intentional work and outreach provided by CID. I cannot speak enough praise for the way CID has changed the life of my son, and our family.

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

Skilled, compassionate, creative, energetic, personable, educated.

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

Continue to provide family outreach to families with children who are deaf and hard of hearing; provide additional educational scholarships for families to take advantage of the quality education offered
