Voices of our Alumni…Hear Our Stories

See and HEAR the proof.....

How beautiful are the voices of those who value sound

Abbey was diagnosed as profoundly deaf before her first birthday and received one cochlear implant at age 2. Early intervention, audiological services, and therapy at MOSD prepared Abbey to mainstream into her local kindergarten program. Abbey stopped receiving speech therapy by the 2nd grade as her clarity of speech was parallel to that of her hearing peers. She graduated from high school in May of 2016 and is now enrolled in the Shackhouls Honors College at Mississippi State University. She has received a full scholarship from the Mississippi Excellence in Teaching Program and is majoring in Elementary Education.

“Our goal is for MOSD students  to not only mainstream into kindergarten, but become independent and successful adults.”-Teresa Schwartz, Executive Director
