Lexington School for the Deaf

Description:
A Tradition of Service to the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Communities. The Lexington School for the Deaf/Center for the Deaf has served the broader Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Community of the New York metropolitan area since 1864. Since its founding as a school, Lexington has evolved to offer vital services in a range of important areas. Lexington strives to be a leading educational, advocacy, and social service agency on behalf of deaf and hard of hearing individuals. Lexington operates the following comprehensive programs in order to carry out this mission: (1) Lexington School (for deaf children age 0-21); (2) Lexington Center for Mental Health Services (outpatient clinic and specialized infant, child, adult, and family services); (3) Lexington Vocational Services Center (supported employment and independent living skills training for adults);(4) Lexington Hearing and Speech Center, community-based speech and audiologyservices; (5) The Ralph and Ricky Lauren Center for the Performing Arts.

The needs of Lexington's students and clients increasingly reflect the challenges posed by society, with many living in poverty and facing profound obstacles to accessing healthcare and to obtaining decent employment. Many are recent immigrants for whom the complex adjustment to life in the United States is made more difficult because of deafness.
Lexington operates three Early Intervention programs which provide referrals to services for families with young children who are deaf or hard of hearing. Lexington also operates a licensed child care and universal pre-k center which provides full-day care for children in the community aged 12 months through pre-kindergarten.
