The work of the Oberkotter Foundation has always been driven by the Trustees’ passionate belief that all children who are deaf or hard of hearing should have the opportunity to reach their full potential. The Oberkotter Foundation focuses its efforts on supporting families who have chosen listening and spoken language for their child and on opportunities for children learning listening and spoken language to develop their social, emotional, language, literacy and educational skills.
To produce the best outcomes for every child and to capitalize on the critical stages of cognitive and language development between birth and age five, we believe that families must have access to comprehensive information and quality services as quickly as possible.
