Our new logo is a vibrant mark celebrating the growth and success of Clarke children. Each day, we watch and listen as they blossom—gaining confidence and acquiring the ability to reach their full potential.
As Clarke reaches more child...ren than ever before, our mission remains unchanged: Providing children who are deaf and hard of hearing with the listening, learning and spoken language skills they need to succeed. Today, the possibilities for children who are deaf and hard of hearing are greater than ever before. We work with families and professionals to ensure that every child has the chance to reach their full potential.
