Every child has the right to develop their individual capabilities to the greatest extent possible. In the case of hearing-impaired children, additional resources are required in order to provide a sound education foundation and an equal opportunity to succeed. Memphis Oral School for the Deaf exists for the purpose of insuring that these unique resources are readily available to those young children who need them. With the combined support of the community and Memphis Oral School, young deaf children in Memphis and the Mid-South area continue to have the opportunity to learn to talk.
