In addition to providing the very best early identification and intervention services for infants, birth to three years of age, Sunshine Cottage offers a comprehensive day-school program for children, preschool through fifth grade, with state-of-the-art educational and hearing technology. Classes are taught by master-level educators, certified in deaf-education.
The Parent-Infant Program works hand in hand with every department in our school so that your infant receives a comprehensive education. Our goal is to have a consistent team devoted to your infant’s care and education. Your team of advisors, teachers, and medical professionals will have an open communication with your family and will always have your infant’s best interest in mind.
Our goal is to evaluate, monitor, and provide habilitative services to children with hearing loss to enable them full access to their listening environment. When a child's hearing loss is identified, intervention should begin immediately. The earlier that intervention occurs the sooner he or she can receive auditory information vital for learning speech and language. With early access to sound through the use of appropriate and consistent amplification or other hearing technology, a child's language level can follow normal development.
Sunshine Cottage School for Deaf Children offers a variety of comprehensive research-based, theory-driven educational products designed for use by professionals, students and parents. Our products are primarily for use with children who are hearing impaired but are appropriate for monitoring, assessing and teaching in areas where typical language, speech, and listening development are a priority.
At Sunshine Cottage, children with hearing loss become part of a community centered on enriching lives and improving listening, language and speech. Every child is embraced by our dedicated staff and provided with the necessary skills to learn in a rich auditory-oral environment. All children and their families benefit from the outstanding educational environment and strong support system spanning their Sunshine Cottage experience.
My name is Heidi Stevener and my husband Robert and I have two children, an 8 year old daughter named Mariella and a 5 yr. old son named Cooper. We moved to San Antonio 14 years ago and of all the places God could have landed us we never knew why it was San Antonio, considering neither one of our families live here, until our son was born.
Silence was all around me as I swayed in the rocking chair with my sleeping four-month-old son. Fancy electrodes covered his tiny forehead, and squishy ear buds lay in his baby ears. Silence mixed with the hushed voices of pediatric audiologists and the faint tones coming from the ear buds.
