I am running my first half marathon in support of Clarke Schools For Hearing and Speech/ New York Campus. Clarke works with children as young as a few days old, who are deaf and hard of hearing, to help them learn to listen and speak. As you know, the Bergers are very involved with Clarke. Meredith is the director of the NY campus and Noa attends the preschool. Knowing how my parents struggled when they first found out that I was deaf, I appreicate the work Clarke does in supporting families of deaf and hard of hearing children in learning about hearing loss, connecting with other families, receiving speech therapy, hearing aids and other services, and most of all, in having hope that their deaf or hard of hearing child can and will be whatever they dream.
