The IESDB Vision
Education, Communication, and Independence for Life.
IESDB provides a continuum of educational opportunities designed to meet the needs of children, families, and our state-wide service delivery partners.
Our program has two options to provide a language rich environment which is guided by the child’s natural communication preference and the multidisciplinary team. The IESDB Outreach Program has a Total Communication Program and a Listening and Spoken Language Program (also known as the Auditory Oral Program).
The classroom instruction is based on developmentally appropriate children’s literature. The books also align with developmental language milestones. The curriculum is specially designed for deaf and hard of hearing children. The goal is to promote language in a fun, engaging, active way to learn so that children can succeed in their future socially, emotionally, and academically.
