Clarke provides children who are deaf or hard of hearing with the listening, learning and spoken language skills they need to succeed. Annually, more than 1,200 children and their families benefit from programs and services at our five locations: Boston, Jacksonville, New York City, Northampton and Philadelphia.
Clarke impacts the lives of children and adults through educational and early childhood programs, hearing services, mainstream services, research, curriculum development and the teachers and professionals trained by Clarke who take their special skills to all parts of the world.
Formerly Clarke School for the Deaf / Center for Oral Education, in 2010, we changed our name to Clarke Schools for Hearing and Speech. This change reflects our distinct mission of teaching children who are deaf and hard of hearing how to listen and talk using the latest technology; and it also highlights our multiple locations—which continue to grow! Our new logo is a vibrant mark celebrating the growth and success of Clarke children. Each day, we watch and listen as they blossom—gaining confidence and acquiring the ability to reach their full potential.
As Clarke reaches more children than ever before, our mission remains unchanged: Providing children who are deaf and hard of hearing with the listening, learning and spoken language skills they need to succeed. Today, the possibilities for children who are deaf or hard of hearing are greater than ever before. We work with families and professionals to ensure that every child has the chance to reach their full potential.
