Throughout the years, thousands of students have left their educational experience at DePaul School for Hearing and Speech with a sense of purpose and determination to become active and productive participants in the hearing and speaking world. In recent years, thanks to many advances in medicine and assistive hearing technology, children who are deaf or hard of hearing are beginning their educational experiences as toddlers and mainstreaming into regular education classrooms at much younger ages.

Most recently, one of our alumni, Elena LaQuatra, was just crowned Miss Pennsylvania! Elena lost her hearing at four years old due to bacterial meningitis. She attended DePaul School for Hearing and Speech and went on to not only compete (and win!) in pageants, but has also been recently hired at WTAE as a digital reporter. We are so proud of Elena! Check out her interview with Sally Wiggin here.
