About Melinda Webb School
The Melinda Webb School is one of only of a limited number of specialized schools in the entire country that teaches children with hearing loss listening and spoken language skills. Children 18 months through 6 years of age receive individualized instruction that accelerates their development of listening and spoken language plus academic skills to prepare them to enter mainstream schools by the first grade. The Melinda Webb School also enrolls children without hearing loss in our Early Childhood and Co-Enrollment programs.
Experienced teachers certified in the areas of deaf education, speech-language pathology, early childhood, and elementary education utilize strategies and tools from the nationally recognized Moog Center to address students’ individual needs. Every Melinda Webb School teacher has received specialized training in speech, language, audition, and cognitive development, as well as ongoing continuing education. Low student-to-teacher ratios allow our teachers to provide every student with the attention and education they need to have a successful academic career in mainstream schools.
At the Melinda Webb School, students participate in a full-day program that includes audition, speech, language, academics, computer lab, art, music, and movement. Individual speech-language therapy is performed by an on-site speech therapist each school week, and students have access to on-site audiological services and support.
