Our educational programs include our Family School, for children birth to three, our School, for children ages 3 to early elementary years, and adult education programs for parents and family members of children enrolled at the Moog Center. Our focus is on teaching the children spoken language as well as all the school subjects that children with normal hearing typically learn in preschool and early elementary grades. Our goal is for the children to mainstream into schools with their hearing age mates as soon as they have acquired the skills to compete successfully.
All parents have the opportunity to participate in parent support sessions, where parents are provided with strategies and techniques for enhancing communication with their children and helping their children learn to talk.
Parents and professionals share in the responsibility of teaching and learning, and listening and talking. The combination of education and support for families creates a collaborative environment where parents are crucial members of the team.
