Find the best private schools for deaf or hearing impaired children

Find a list of schools  

Many children and adults have some form of hearing impairment. This can differ in severity and be either permanent or temporary.

Hearing impairment, also known as “hearing loss,” is a partial or total inability to hear. The degree of hearing impairment varies between people. It can range from complete hearing loss (or deafness) to partial hearing loss (meaning the ears can pick up some sounds).

Below, we list private schools for deaf or visually impaired children. This includes schools in Toronto, Ottawa, and across Ontario.

Some of these schools also provide support for other special needs and physical disabilities, such as Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Cystic Fibrosis (CF), Cerebral Palsy (CP)dyspraxia, visual impairment, anxiety, depression, ODD, ADHD, dyslexia, autism, Asperger’s, Down syndrome, and intellectual disabilities. Find a school for hearing impairment near you.
