Our goal is to prepare our students to work and socialize alongside their peers with typical hearing in their local schools as soon as possible. The vocabulary, language, speech and early literacy tests we use are standardized on children with typical hearing, so results for our students who are deaf and hard of hearing can be compared to results achieved by children with typical hearing the same age. This comparison gives us a clear picture of each student’s capabilities. Some examples are:

  • Receptive Vocabulary Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test (PPVT-5)
  • Expressive Vocabulary Test (EVT-3)
  • Preschool Language Scale-IV (PLS-5)
  • Clinical Evaluation of Language Fundamentals-Preschool (CELF-P3)
  • Goldman-Fristoe Test of Articulation (GFTA-3)
  • Test of Preschool Early Literacy (TOPEL)
