In the Soundbridge Early Learning Center children with and without hearing loss learn in a language-rich environment through individual and small group instruction. This unique preschool experience encourages the child's communicative competence and confidence in his or her learning abilities, as well as fostering age-appropriate physical, social-emotional, self-help, and readiness abilities..

Children with hearing loss need to be able to hear summer school teachers and camp counselors, just as much as they need to hear their teachers during the school year. For students who are enrolled in summer programs outside of Soundbridge, our Summer Assistive Technology Service includes: use of child's FM system (rental options available), technology phone support, FM back-up, and return shipping to Soundbridge for repairs and at the end of summer use.
