Clarke Schools for Hearing and Speech – Listening Walk at the Zoo
On Sunday May 15, 2016, Susan and Jack had the delight of taking part in the Clarke’s School Listening Walk at The Philadelphia Zoo. There was a high level of enthusiasm by over 1,000 participants. Clarke’s School Listening Walk at The Philadelphia Zoo was designed to encourage children who are deaf or hard of hearing to use their listening skills and discover new sounds throughout the Zoo.
The walk was a fun-filled day with children, families and friends from Clarke Schools for Hearing and Speech! The students and alumni went on a listening scavenger hunt throughout the Philadelphia Zoo. Clarke children used their cochlear implants, hearing aids and skills they have learned at Clarke, to visit Listening Walk Stops throughout the Zoo, to discover new animal sounds while also learning about zoo animals. This was a tremendous success!
Clarke Schools for Hearing and Speech teach children who are deaf or hard of hearing to listen and talk. Their professionals work to ensure that every child has the chance to reach his/her full potential and has a life full of limitless possibilities. Susan and Jack were pleased to help raise awareness on social media about the wonderful work of Clarke Schools for Hearing and Speech as well as sponsor a Listening Stop #10 (BARNYARD ANIMALS) in support of Listening Walk At The Philadelphia Zoo.
