About CID: At CID, a multidisciplinary team of teachers, pediatric audiologists and speech-language pathologists use listening and spoken language to prepare children who are deaf and hard of hearing to participate and succeed without the need for sign language. Generous private scholarship support enables CID to turn away no child with hearing loss based on a family's inability to pay.
Students typically live in the St. Louis metropolitan area, southern Illinois and rural Missouri. CID students have come from 48 U.S. states and 28 other countries.
CID provides continuing education workshops and curricula for professionals in deaf education, audiology and speech-language pathology. CID also offers guided observations, consultation models and in-service training for public and private schools and school districts who serve children who use cochlear implants and hearing aids. CID helps prepare future teachers of the deaf and audiologists, offering practicum experiences for local university graduate students. CID teachers serve as faculty in the Washington University School of Medicine Program in Audiology and Communication Sciences (PACS). This program is closely affiliated with but financially independent from CID.
CID was founded in 1914 by St. Louis doctor Max Goldstein, MD, in rooms above his medical offices on Vandeventer Avenue. He envisioned a place where teachers, parents and doctors would work together to help deaf children learn to listen, talk and achieve independence. The science and profession of audiology were developed at CID along with successful methods and practices for teaching children listening, spoken language and literacy skills.
CID has been located at the southern end of the Washington University Medical Center/Central West End neighborhood of St. Louis since 1916. CID is a proud member of the United Way.
