Omaha Hearing School For Children

  • The Omaha Hearing School for Children began in 1952 in a small apartment over a garage.
  • It was started by four Omaha Ear, Nose and Throat doctors and their wives, Dr. & Mrs. Allan Davis, Dr. & Mrs. W.A. Cassidy, Dr. & Mrs. Frank Klabenes, and Dr. & Mrs. Robert Lovgren.
  • These eight pioneers are responsible for developing an educational alternative in this area that would assist deaf and hard of hearing children in learning oral communication skills.
  • The children at the Omaha Hearing School have hearing losses that affect their ability to communicate the way most people do.
  • These hearing losses would have lifelong impact if no help were available to these young children and their families.
  • But deaf and hard of hearing children can work to overcome the language and auditory difficulties caused by hearing loss or deafness.
  • They can share in the mainstream if given the chance and with the proper help.
  • Our mission is to serve children who are deaf or hard-of-hearing, their families and the community by providing auditory oral education.
  • Auditory oral education teaches children to listen and talk, so as they grow, choices will be available to them in our talking and hearing world.
