Review for Central Institute for the Deaf, Saint Louis, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am inspired every time I walk through the front doors of CID! We adopted our severely, profoundly deaf son from India at age 4 1/2. Even before we brought him home to the USA, Lynda Berkowitz of CID was willing to look at videos and reports of our son to get an idea of his issues and how he could be helped by CID. Shortly after we brought him home, he received bilateral cochlear implants and started school at CID. Although being nearly age 5 is considered late intervention for a child to receive cochlear implant‘s, CID‘s masterful teaching and
state -of-the- art organization gave our son the opportunity to learn to hear and speak! He is now 15 years old and in a traditional public school setting doing very well! We are so very deeply grateful for the opportunity that our son had to attend CID and for the resulting life-changing opportunities he is now experiencing.
