Dear Districts,

Welcome to New York School for the Deaf’s website!

Whether you currently have students placed with us or you are considering possible placement for a preschool or school aged student, we invite you to tour our website, our beautiful campus and our school.

We serve students from birth to 21 through our Family Infant Program; our full day preschool and our school-aged programs and provide a full array of related and support services for preschool and school-aged students including: speech/language, occupational and physical therapy, counseling, vision support and audiological services. We follow the Common Core Standards and have adopted a school-wide Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) program. Our students enjoy state of the art technology in their classrooms as well as access to individual laptops. We offer a full extracurricular athletic and sports program and weekend activities for families. Instruction in American Sign Language (ASL) is provided at no cost to our families and students.  Our collaborative partnerships with New York University Cochlear Implant Center and New York Presbyterian Hospital Mental Health Program for the Deaf, assure that our students and families have access to vital support services right from the convenience of our campus!

Please click on the Admissions Tab for information on the application process for parents and school districts.  Feel free to contact us for further information and assistance.

New York School for the Deaf, (a.k.a.“Fanwood”), is a venerable institution which is just a few short years away from celebrating it’s 200th anniversary!  Come see for yourself what we are doing so right to have lasted so long!

Sincerely,

Carol Rapport-Sommer
Director of Special Programs & Services
