  • Employer Description

    The Learning Center for the Deaf (TLC) is a nationally-recognized leader in educational, therapeutic, and community services for deaf and hard of hearing children and adults. We are the largest provider of services to deaf and hard of hearing children in New England, and the largest private employer of deaf individuals in the State of Massachusetts. In 2019, TLC was named Outstanding Organization of the Year by the Massachusetts Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.
    TLC is in an exciting and dynamic stage of growth, and our multiple lines of service offer a variety of creative opportunities for individuals to make an impact. The primary language of communication on campus is American Sign Language, and deaf candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.

    Walden School (WS) is a nationally-recognized residential therapeutic and education program for deaf children and youth ages 8 to 22.
    Walden residential school students are challenged by severe social and emotional difficulties, and have significant treatment needs that have not been successfully addressed in other academic and residential settings. Working with a staff that is proficient in American Sign Language (over 75% of whom are Deaf), Walden students receive highly individualized, trauma-informed care and therapy in a structured, supportive, home-like setting. Students attend classes during the day in contained classes with curriculum modified to each individual need, and have the opportunity to participate in a range of activities on campus.
