Oralingua's mission is to immerse children who are deaf or hard of hearing in a language-rich environment that supports the development and use of listening, speech and spoken language in academic and social settings.
Oralingua helps students to develop listening skills, speech and spoken language by exposing them to meaningful language experiences; develop cognitive abilities to understand information, analyze problems, seek-out and generate solutions at school and in everyday life; develop ability to communicate verbally and effectively interpret the spoken and written word; and prepare for mainstreaming experiences within traditional schools.
Our students range in age from infancy to 12 years old and reside in cities throughout Southern California. Oralingua has 2 locations; our main campus in Whittier and our satellite campus in San Marcos, near San Diego. In addition to being a nonprofit organization, Oralingua is certified by the California Department of Education as a nonpublic school. This distinction allows us to partner with over 30 local school districts to provide students an educational program that focuses on the development of listening and spoken language.
