Parent Infant Program (PIP)
Start your journey here!The Parent Infant Program at Horace Mann School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing is an accredited program offering services to deaf and hard of hearing children ages 0-3. We are a dual language program that values both American Sign Language (ASL) and English, as well as the many languages and cultures of the children's families.
