A synergy all its own
Echo Center is regarded as one of the pre-eminent auditory oral deaf education programs in the US and, as such, attracts frequent requests for visitation from educators and other professionals worldwide. Dedicated to developing listening, speech and language skills, we rely on our strong educational program, state-of-the-art technology and emphasis on character to involve deaf and hard of hearing (DHH) children in mainstream classes. Both our DHH and hearing students benefit enormously in a synergy unparalleled at any other institution.
Our credentialed DHH teachers, enjoying a low specialist-to-student ratio, check for curriculum comprehension, consult with classroom teachers, and conduct one-on-one sessions. Because of the relationships we have built with various programs and clinical services, we are able to support our Echo Horizon School families in a variety of ways, including communicating with hearing/health professionals and supporting families with the use of hearing devices such as hearing aids and cochlear implants.
We are proud that our Echo Center students excel in all areas, from academics to the arts to physical education. When they graduate, they move on to mainstream middle schools throughout Southern California, with our Echo Center teachers available to offer in-service support at these schools.
