Summit Speech School teaches deaf and hard of hearing children to listen and talk. It was founded in 1967 on the grounds of Overlook Hospital as New Jersey’s first “speech school” for deaf children.  It now serves over 300 students with hearing loss annually from a wide area of northern and central New Jersey.  The School prepares very young children who are deaf and hard of hearing to enter mainstream schools and thereafter supports them in their mainstream schools through high school.  The School’s goal is for all of its students to thrive in their social relationships, colleges and careers.  It also educates and supports the students’ families.
