About TLC
The Learning Center for the Deaf (TLC) is a nationally-recognized leader in educational, therapeutic, and community services for deaf and hard of hearing children and adults. The mission of The Learning Center for the Deaf is to ensure that all deaf and hard of hearing children and adults thrive by having the knowledge, opportunity, and power to design the future of their choice.   

Over the past 49 years, TLC has seen tremendous growth – from a small school in a rented room to a robust, diverse multi-service agency with 17 buildings on a 14-acre campus and two additional locations, one in Framingham and the other in Springfield.

Today, we are the largest provider of services to deaf and hard of hearing children in New England, and the largest private employer of Deaf individuals in the State of Massachusetts.

At TLC, the primary language of communication is American Sign Language. Those new to our community, or learning ASL, are encouraged to use ASL to the best of their ability. Interpreter services are also scheduled in advance for visitors to ensure that communication is barrier-free. Our goal is that all individuals on our campus feel included, respected and welcomed.

At The Learning Center for the Deaf, we pride ourselves in collaboration, and welcome all inquiries into consultation, education, interpreting, audiology, assessment, research and behavioral health services.

About Us
Areas of Focus: 
Mission: 

The mission of The Learning Center for the Deaf is to ensure that all deaf and hard of hearing children and adults thrive by having the knowledge, opportunity, and power to design the future of their choice.

Programs: 

TLC’s Badavas Parent-Infant Program, a specialty early intervention provider, was the first in the country to employ a Deaf director, and continues this tradition under its current leadership.  

 

TLC’s Pre-K through 12 program (now Marie Philip School) was the first school in Massachusetts to incorporate ASL and English.  Today, MPS embraces bilingual/bicultural education as its educational philosophy. This model reframes the deaf child as a whole person with an identity and belonging and provides rich access to visual language (moving away from the typical medical/pathological model).

 

The Walden School was the first program of its kind to offer services in a Deaf culturally affirming environment with more than 50% of the staff being deaf and all staff fluent in ASL. The program has received regional and national recognition in the fields of Deaf education, children’s mental health, and child welfare services for its successful strength-based model of treatment.
 

TLC’s Public School Partnerships program (PSP) addresses the specific needs of students with hearing aids and cochlear implants in educational settings throughout the state, providing a support system for monitoring deaf and hard of hearing students’ academic and developmental progress. 

 

TLC also offers wraparound support services through Walden Community Services at TLC, the first and only children’s behavioral health initiative I provider specialized in serving deaf children and families across the entire Commonwealth of Massachusetts.  

 

TLC offers fee-based community interpreting services and consultation for local businesses, schools, and local and state agencies.  


 

TLC’s Center for Research and Training consults and collaborates with organizations, universities, schools, districts, and states to promote effective instructional practices and assessment in American Sign Language and English.  

 

Our Deaf Cultural Center, located in a historic building on our campus, celebrates Deaf history and culture.

We offer onsite ASL classes for  emerging signers, as well as for proficient signers who seek to learn more.

We are proud to be recognized as an Employer of Choice among deaf and hard of hearing individuals and the Deaf community. Awards to TLC  include Outstanding Employer/Partner Award, 2018 by RIT/NTID, and Outstanding Organization of the Year 2019 by the Massachusetts Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.  In 2019, TLC signed the Greater Boston Disability Rights Pledge, and as such, “We recognize disability rights as a central component of diversity and social justice. We pledge to prioritize the tenets of inclusion and accessibility.”

An Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer,  we value the perspectives, identity and contributions of each member of our community and celebrate its rich diversity. Reasonable accommodations and modifications will be made whenever possible.
