St. Joseph Institute–Indianapolis (SJI-I) is part of the St. Joseph Institute for the Deaf system based in St. Louis, Missouri. A variety of programming, including early intervention, preschool and school-age support focuses on the development of spoken and written language skills in children with hearing loss.


SJI-I staff includes teachers and speech language pathologists with advanced degrees and many years of experience. Family involvement is both welcome and encouraged.


The program is based in an open, child-friendly facility on the north side of Indianapolis. SJI-I offers preschool and kindergarten classes for both children with hearing loss and hearing children. All children can benefit from the strong language-rich preschool curriculum through the Early Childhood Center. Early intervention sessions for children birth to age three are typically conducted in the child’s home and SJI-I professionals travel to area public and private schools to work with mainstreamed hearing impaired children.
