Review for Central Institute for the Deaf, SAINT LOUIS, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Our children, Ivy and Ian were diagnosed as profoundly deaf at birth. It was a moment in our lives filled with uncertainty and fear of the unknown. We didn’t know what kind of future would be possible and available to them.

Ivy and Ian’s special education journeys with CID started in January 2013. We have been so blessed to have amazing CID educators in their entire lives. Audiologists, teachers, and the other staff were all in one place to provide full support to our kids every day. It was an incredible lifetime experience when they started to learn how to listen, talk, and read.

CID educators are enthusiastic supporters, they taught us how powerful a feeling it is to be independent from a non-verbal world. We always felt secure within CID boundaries. CID has had our back and advocated for the best in our children’s education.

Now it’s time for us to grow and step out of these boundaries. It is daunting but Ivy and Ian feel confident and ready for anything this world has to offer.

Thank you so much for making all these things possible in their future and helping us dream big. We are no longer uncertain and fearful for our children's future.
