Dr. Max A. Goldstein established the Central Institute for the Deaf (CID) in 1914. He believed that deaf children should be regarded not only as clinical entities, but as individuals whose education, social, and economic needs demanded professional and community attention. Under his leadership, the Institute organized an effective cooperation between teachers, otologists, and researchers to offer education to deaf students of all ages to provide a lifetime of communicating and learning.  When it opened in 1914, CID was the first fully dedicated auditory-oral school for deaf children in “the west”.  Today, CID continues to provide a unique combination of education and community service to benefit children who are deaf and hard of hearing.
