Mission Statement

CID teaches children who are deaf and hard of hearing to listen, talk, read and succeed. We empower families and professionals in St. Louis and worldwide to help children reach their fullest potential.

Description

CID is a school where children who are deaf and hard of hearing learn to listen, talk and read without using sign language. We prepare children to participate and succeed in their neighborhood schools. Generous private support makes us affordable for all. We serve children from birth to age 12. For over 100 years, CID has helped deaf children learn to listen and talk and putting them on the path toward happy and productive lives.

All CID programs are designed to prepare children for mainstream educational settings. In a highly individualized, assessment-based program with a 5-1 or better student-teacher ratio, we weave speech, language and auditory instruction throughout the academics and offer music, art, physical education and computer instruction.

Our teachers, speech therapists and pediatric audiologists are dedicated, caring individuals with advanced degrees in deaf education and faculty appointments at Washington University School of Medicine. Their successes speak in the voices and everyday lives of our alumni, many of whom pursue higher education and professional careers.
