Founded in 1970, TLC became the first school for deaf children in Massachusetts, and one of the first schools for the deaf in the country to implement a bilingual/bicultural approach in educating deaf children. The school believes that deaf and hard of hearing students have the right to maximize their personal, educational, social, communicative and vocational potential through participating in demanding educational experiences, which develop their ability to think creatively and critically. With early access to American Sign Language and English, TLC students develop positive self-identities and the skills to be successful participants in both the Hearing and Deaf Communities.
