Narrative

Horace Mann School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing is a Boston Public School that offers services to newly diagnosed deaf and hard of hearing children from birth to 3 years.  The first three years of a child’s life is a critical and optimal time to learn and acquire language.  We are dedicated to providing support for parents in giving their children access to the full range of language opportunities they need to thrive, as well as meeting the developmental needs of the children.  We are a dual language program that values both American Sign Language (ASL) and English.  We teach children from many different countries and cultures.  Our Parent Infant Program offers families the opportunity to consult with our Licensed Teachers of the Deaf, ASL Specialist, Audiologist, Speech/Language Pathologists, Psychologist and Counselors/Behavioral Therapists.   We provide family and child playgroups, home visits, ASL classes, and parent education discussion groups. Spoken language interpreters are provided upon request.
