History

Our Center was founded in 1996 by a group of innovative, experienced teachers and dedicated and determined parents with high expectations. Many of our families have moved to St. Louis so their children could attend the Moog Center for Deaf Education.

Our school is now 21 years old and we have 185 alumni. 

In addition to the programs we provide to families and children from birth to early elementary years, we also have a commitment to teaching other professionals how to teach children with hearing loss to talk. We help teachers, speech-language pathologists, and audiologists improve their skills through workshops at the Moog Center, in service-training and coaching on-site at their schools, and presentations at national and international conferences. Throughout our history our focus has been on excellence in teaching and high standards of achievement.
