More than just a school, Lexington is the leading social service advocate for the hearing impaired in New York City.

The school serves all deaf and hard of hearing children from birth through age 21. The Lexington Hearing And Speech Center offers community-based audiology services. More than just a school for the individual to help them cope with their handicap, Lexington School For The Deaf offers resources for the entire family.

As a part of its mission, Lexington provides a child care center for children ages 2 through 5. The Early Intervention Program is designed for children from birth to three years of age and provides:

  • Service Coordination (Initial and Ongoing)
  • Evaluations, including hearing, speech and language, and psychological development
  • Speech and Language Therapy
  • Hearing Assistive Technology

There is also a therapeutic nursery available for parents and infants, and another one for parents and toddlers ready for learning.
