Maximizing communication potential through early education, family support and community audiology services.
Since 1980, the Center for Early Intervention on Deafness (CEID) has provided exemplary services for young children, from birth to age 5, who are deaf, hard of hearing or who have severe speech and language delays. To achieve our goal of maximizing communication potentials, we offer comprehensive programs in early education in combination with extensive therapy (language, speech, auditory, occupational, and physical therapies), home visits, and family education and support. Our community audiology services round out our center offering comprehensive audiology services to children and adults in 24 counties. Our highly qualified staff members hold Master’s degrees in deaf education, speech therapy, occupational therapy, social work, and infant mental health. We also work closely with two expert consultants: a neurodevelopmental pediatrician and a clinical psychologist.
