To visit this website click here for home page.
St. Joseph Institute for the Deaf is committed to the auditory-oral education, spiritual and emotional growth, and personal development of hearing-impaired children and young adults, without discrimination, reflecting the values and traditions of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet.
One of the programs provided is IHear - Click here
IHear is an innovative program designed to bring listening and spoken language therapy services to families and children regardless of where they live or go to school. For many parents of children with hearing loss, these specialized therapy services are often not accessible due to distance or lack of qualified professionals in their community. IHear bridges the sound barrier to link families and therapists for live, interactive therapy sessions. Therapists identify practical activities to use at home to continue the learning process.
IHear services are provided through a high quality audio-visual connection and take place at designated times convenient to each child. The program is easy to access and use. High-speed DSL or broadband internet connections are required. Families owning a suitable computer will receive software and support necessary to establish tele-conference links. If no computer is available, families may elect to participate in our "Computer Loaner Club."
