DePaul School for Hearing and Speech teaches children who are deaf or hard of hearing to listen and speak without sign language.
At DePaul School for Hearing and Speech, we celebrate the success of each individual child with hearing loss as he or she transitions to and thrives in the hearing and speaking world. Located in Pittsburgh, PA, DePaul School is the only Listening and Spoken Language (LSL) school in the western Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia tri-state area.
DePaul School works with children from birth through 8th grade to prepare them for a world of sound. Our goal for every student is for them to transition to their neighborhood schools alongside their peers with typical hearing. Most of our students transition by kindergarten!
Founded in 1908 by the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh and the Sisters of Charity of Seton Hill, DePaul School for Hearing and Speech has been providing quality Listening and Spoken Language (LSL) education for children with hearing loss for over 100 years. The goal then, as it is now, was to prepare each student for success in our hearing and speaking world.
At DePaul School, we understand and closely follow up-to-date methodologies in technology and education, constantly realigning our programs to ensure each child’s success. We take a comprehensive approach to nurturing young children who are deaf or hard of hearing and their families.
