About CID: CID teachers of the deaf, pediatric audiologists, speech-language therapists, early childhood specialists, occupational therapists and other professionals provide highly individualized, assessment-based programs to help children who are deaf and hard of hearing acquire speech, language and literacy skills. We prepare students to participate and succeed socially and academically in their local schools with their hearing peers, without the need for sign language. (This is sometimes known as the auditory-oral or listening and spoken language approach.)
CID students typically live in the St. Louis metropolitan area, southern Illinois and rural Missouri. From time to time, families move to St. Louis or live in split household situations so their children can attend.
