We are dedicated to the rehabilitation and education of babies and children with hearing impairments so that they learn to hear, think and talk. We count on a team of specialized professionals that guide and coach family and child to develop their maximum potential.
In an environment of engagement and affection child and family find the understanding and support to reach the desired outcome for the child.
Since 1956 we help deaf and hard of hearing children to hear, think and talk through an auditory-verbal methodology (by teaching them to communicate through the oral language) to foster independence that will facilitate their integration to present world.
If you have a child with hearing impairments since birth to 5 years old, our IOM Center will guide and coach you providing the best strategies to develop the child’s hearing, learning and speech abilities, during individual or group sessions that equip parents with the necessary skills and knowledge to be actively involved in the child’s learning process.
All our children are equipped with effective hearing aids or cochlear implants that improve their ability to hear all sounds related to language.
In the Kindergarten and Primary Sections of our School, children gathered in groups develop all the academic aspects of the official program established by the Government of the City of Buenos Aires.
The IOM School for specialized professionals provides a constant training program on methodology and related subjects for professionals and institutes of diverse disciplines.
We are members of the prestigious international associations: AGBell and Option Schools which give us the possibility of being permanently updated and sharing experiences with the most important institutes worldwide.
Our philosophy of excellence in education and team work with highly qualified professionals of diverse related areas guarantees the best results.
We invite you to meet our professionals, parents and pupils to learn more about what IOM can offer to your child.
