2017–2018 NSSLHA Loves Recipient
The NSSLHA Executive Council has named
John Tracy Clinic (JTC) as the 2017–2018 NSSLHA Loves recipient!
John Tracy Clinic is the leading diagnostic and education center for young children with hearing loss. Their renowned audiology, education, and support services have garnered international attention and praise for cutting-edge expertise and compassionate family-focused care. JTC is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to provide parent-centered services locally and globally to young children with hearing loss, offering families hope, guidance, and encouragement.
JTC was founded in 1943 by Louise Treadwell Tracy, wife of actor Spencer Tracy. When the Tracys were told their son, John, was deaf, Mrs. Tracy abandoned a promising career on stage to help her son. In the process, she became a trailblazer in the fields of deaf education and parental support. Currently, JTC annually serves 2,500 families worldwide. JTC offered one of the nation's first spoken-language education and support programs for parents of children with hearing loss. JTC is recognized as the leader in early childhood deaf education and is the world's largest private provider of services to young children with, or at risk of, hearing loss. Over the years, JTC has introduced programs and services that have transformed the deaf and hard of hearing community, including:
- Hearing tests
- Parent-infant programs
- A preschool
- A graduate program
- International summer sessions
- An online parent distance education program
JTC is deeply committed to fulfilling our mission to offer hope, guidance, and encouragement through various educational programs and services.
