Founded on a dream and maintained by deeply committed staff members and parents, Oralingua School is dedicated to the belief that deaf children can learn to talk, listen, think, achieve and fully participate in our “hearing world.” Located in Whittier, California (MAP), Oralingua is an auditory-oral day school established in 1969.
Oralingua’s primary purpose is to give hearing impaired children a specialized, quality education to develop their full potential. Our program teaches children to listen and talk, using their residual hearing amplified by hearing aids and/or cochlear implants. It is our goal to have the children working at or above grade level despite their profound hearing loss. Many of our students are able to mainstream into regular classrooms within their own school districts. Read what our alumni and parents have to say about their Oralingua experience!

We serve children throughout California, the United States, and other countires such as the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, China and the United Arab Emirates.

Oralingua is internationally recognized and has been previously honored by the Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf as “Program of the Year”. Oralingua has also received the “Continued Excellence in Education” award.

We invite you to explore our web site for more information about our program and the people who make it happen. The successes of our students are our best rewards. We encourage visitations so that the public can see and “hear” what our children have to say.
