Most CID teachers have a master’s degree in deaf education. A few have an undergraduate degree in deaf education with master’s degree/s in related areas. All CID classroom teachers also maintain certification from the Council on Education of the Deaf, a national organization.

CID is financially separate from but closely affiliated with the Program in Audiology and Communication Sciences (PACS) at Washington University School of Medicine, which trains audiologists, scientists and teachers of the deaf. Some of our teachers and audiologists serve as faculty members, and we provide practicum experiences for students in this program as well as similar programs at other universities.
