Tuition and Financial Aid
Private Education Affordable for All Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children Who Qualify
For children who are deaf and hard of hearing accepted into the CID school, scholarship support and other financial aid typically is available. Thanks to generous private support, we turn no hearing-impaired child away based on inability to pay.
Children birth-3 years old in our Family Center are typically supported by Missouri First Steps and Illinois Child and Family Connections programs. Our parent counselors will guide you through the process of obtaining help. Families of older children (3-12) receive school district funding and/or tuition assistance made possible by generous donors to CID.
A number of school districts from a number of states contract with CID for an appropriate educational program for a child. CID assists families in accessing all available third-party resources. Real estate referrals and other assistance is available for families whose children are accepted into the CID school and who move from other locations.
We're here to help you. Please contact the business manager, Amy Tighe, firstname.lastname@example.org 314.977.0234 for details about available financial assistance.
