Heuser Hearing & Language Academy provides a very specialized curriculum for children who are diagnosed with a hearing loss and/or speech delays. Everywhere you visit in Heuser you will be immersed in a language rich environment. The curriculum for literacy has been very carefully chosen specifically to increase language and vocabulary achievement. In addition, all student receive Heuser’s own STREAM (science, technology, reading, engineering, arts and math) curriculum. This includes a STREAM lab where the students perform hands-on experiments and daily center activities that allow them to observe, explore and investigate the world around them! In addition, HHLA follows all state-mandated curriculum guidelines for educational programs, along with providing vital programs such as our intensive speech-language, art, music, dance therapy and theatre classes. Our students are regularly exposed to the arts in order to promote expression and learning in various forms.
