Review for HEARING SCHOOL OF THE SOUTHWEST INC, Coppell, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Hearing School of the Southwest has been a very integral part of our daughter’s success. When we discovered that she is deaf we decided to provide her with cochlear implants. This meant taking an aggressive approach in speech therapy and education. When she turned three we sent her to a deaf education program through our public school system. She did well in that program, but they had to follow the districts guide lines and not the specific needs of our daughter. We had known about the Hearing School for awhile through other parents that were sending their children there. The speech therapist that was working with her was hired on by the school and we then decided to enroll her. Thanks to the hard work of the staff our daughter was able to attend mainstream kindergarten after only being at The Hearing School of the Southwest for a year. She just finished main stream first grade at her home school testing above the state level and moving on to second grade. We still use the staff at The Hearing School as a resource. We now have a son, who is also deaf with cochlear implants, and we hope to send him to the school to enjoy the same success that his sister has. Anytime that we run into a family with a child with hearing loss we ask if they have heard of The Hearing School of the Southwest and if not they do by the end of the conversation.
