Southeast Asian Institute of the Deaf

We are the First Total Communication school in the Philippines. We believe that within each child who is deaf lies the same potential for future growth that is inherent in all children. We utilize all language modalities: child-devised gestures, formal language of signs, speech, speech reading, finger spelling, amplification of residual hearing, reading and writing, to develop goals of language competence and scholastic success. We offer academic programs from pre-school to high school. Special learning areas such as speech and Auditory Training, Rhythm, Sign Language and other essential components in the education of the deaf child are integrated in the curriculum.

MC-SAID offers Basic Education Programs - Preschool, Grade School (Grades 1-6), and Junior High School (Grades 7-10).
