Tip #1: Singing provides a good sense of rhythm, and the tone helps children with hearing loss recognize the melody in speech.

Our students truly speak miracles every day! You can help them achieve their goals by supporting DePaul School as a sponsor or donating an item for our silent auction. Sponsorship is a great chance to get your brand noticed and appreciated by more than 300+ guests. You can also be featured on “The DePaul School Marquee!” Although we do receive funding through the state for our services, only 60% of our operating costs are covered through those funds and your support is vital in ensuring that every child at DePaul who is deaf or hard of hearing receives the specialized education that enables them to be successful in the hearing and speaking world.

For more information on how you can participate in the 14th Annual Reach for the Stars Gala: Broadway Edition, please feel free to reach out to Sara Baines-Miller at info@depaulhearingandspeech.org or 412-924-1012. I also invite you to visit the school and meet the students you are supporting. That way you can see—or rather hear—your gift in action!

Tip #4: Deaf and hard of hearing children who receive early intervention services have been found to have better language outcomes up to age five.
