The Melinda Webb School at The Center for Hearing and Speech offers a high-quality early education program for children with hearing loss between the ages of 18 months and 6 years. The goal of the school is to teach the students to listen, speak and read so that they can enter public or private school no later than first grade.
The school was founded in 1947 by four parents who were determined their hearing-impaired children would have a chance to learn to speak. Melinda Webb was one of the first students to attend the school and graduate from its programs.
Unfortunately, Melinda passed away at a young age. Melinda's father, Frank, established an endowment fund at the Center in 1997 and the school was named "The Melinda Webb School" in her memory.
