Deaf Kids Talk

At A Glance

parents in Touch



Just one of the services we provide here at JWPOSD are thorough individual assessments for children attending our program as well as for deaf or hard of hearing children in other educational settings. We use the latest tests and techniques to determine the level your child has reached in their listening, language and speech skills. We also site those areas in which children may need further practice.

The process for off-site students involves a minimum of six sessions during which they will see a speech pathologist, teacher of the deaf and an occupational therapist so that a complete picture of the child can be drawn. A detailed report is written and described to parents at the end of the evaluation period. For more information please call 650-365-7500.
