The Moog Center for Deaf Education was founded in 1996 by one of the pioneers of the oralism method, Jean Sachar Moog.

The Moog Center is an independent, not-for-profit school that provides education services to children — birth to early elementary years — with hearing loss and their families.

There are eight Certified Moog Programs that offer oral education for deaf and hard-of-hearing children and their families:[1]

  • Buffalo Hearing and Speech Center in Buffalo, New York
  • Child's Voice in the Chicago, Illinois area
  • Colegio Las Lomas Oral in Buenos Aires, Argentina
  • Desert Voices in Phoenix, Arizona
  • The Moog Center for Deaf Education in St. Louis, Missouri
  • Northern Voices in the Twin Cities, Minnesota
  • Ohio Valley Voices in Cincinnati, Ohio
  • Presbyterian Ear Institute Oral School in Albuquerque, New Mexico

The focus of the curriculum is accelerating development of spoken language and, when the children are ready, to help them learn the same subjects as their hearing age-mates so they can catch up and be full participants in the mainstream.
