The Learning Center for Deaf Children (TLC) serves Deaf and hard-of-hearing students from infancy through high school. Founded in 1970 with several basic principles in mind, the following continue to be prevalent within our philosophy:
*TLC fosters respect for each of our students, for their families, and for every staff member.
*TLC faculty shares the firm belief that learning is a life-long process which can be exciting and fun.
TLC creates an environment where communication is continuously accessible.
*TLC provides academic opportunities and high standards for all Deaf and hard-of-hearing children.
The Learning Center today is comprised of three schools — a comprehensive Parent/Infant through High School program in Framingham, Massachusetts, which serves the majority of our students; a satellite program in Randolph, Massachusetts, which was established in 1994 to better serve the southeastern region; and Walden School, a therapeutic treatment program for Deaf students with severe emotional, behavioral or developmental disturbances.
Throughout its history, The Learning Center for Deaf Children has been a leader in Deaf education. It was the first school in Massachusetts to depart from the "oral" method of education and to advocate the use of sign language in addition to spoken English. In 1988, TLC made a commitment to become a bilingual and bicultural school, placing it among the first in the nation. Visitors to The Learning Center, from the USA and abroad, have without exception commented on our stimulating faculty, our warm and language-rich environment, and our happy, expressive children.
