Review for Central Institute for the Deaf, Saint Louis, MO, USA
Our family will forever be indebted to Central Institute for the Deaf (CID). Our son, Trey, spent three years at CID. The experience for the entire family was nothing short of amazing. The Family Center and ECC Programs supported him as he minimized language and developmental gaps, established self-advocacy skills, and optimized use of his hearing devices to interpret the world around him. More so, CID provided Trey a firm academic stepping stone that will serve him for years to come. CID also allowed family to remain a priority when Trey and his typically hearing sister, Amelia, were able to share one year together while she was enrolled in the Hearing Peer Program. When asked to talk about his favorite part of CID at graduation, Trey replied, “My friends and teachers are sure fun, and I like doing all the cool stuff and learning. I’m like a genius now!”
Jennifer, thank you so much for sharing your story with us. We love to hear about Trey.
