Central Institute For The Deaf Photo #3 - Small class sizes and teachers with advanced degrees combine to create a high quality, highly individualized listening and spoken language education for every student.
CID is a school where teachers, audiologists and speech-language pathologists use listening and spoken language to teach children who are deaf and hard of hearing from birth to age 12.
We teach children to listen, talk, read and succeed in their local schools without the use of sign language.
CID also provides educational curricula, exppert consultation and continuing education opportunities for professionals.
