For the last year, our organization has been busy working with a consultant and our stakeholders in northern New England to examine the strengths and challenges of our business model. Based upon their recommendations, we sought organizational partners that would be interested in acquiring our clients and our providers so that family centered, high quality Listening and Spoken Language Services would continue to be available in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.
We are pleased to share that Moog Center for Deaf Education will be acquiring our pediatric programs and services. The Moog Center is a non-profit program located in St. Louis, Missouri. It was founded in 1996 and has served as a model for other programs across the US. They have a strong teleservices program that has been supporting infants and toddlers in many states since 2013. The Moog Center also has a TeleSchool program which supports professionals in the public school setting working with students who are deaf or hard of hearing. The Moog Center will bring many resources to children who are deaf or hard of hearing in northern New England! At the same time, the hear ME now Listening and Spoken Language Specialists currently working with New England families will remain as their regional Moog provider.
