Rochester School for the Deaf

The Rochester School for the Deaf needs your help! We are competing against other schools in a hand-lip sync challenge; the school that raises the most money wins the competition and we want to win! Help us by donating on our video. Then share our video with all of your facebook/email friends :-) Donations go toward Junior National Association of the Deaf (Jr. NAD) in their continuing efforts to provide meaningful programs for our students.

  • We are one of the very few deaf schools that is named after a city: Rochester School for the Deaf!
  • Our former communication method was Rochester Method which was exclusively fingerspelling! Can you imagine teachers and students communicating using only fingerspelling!?
  • We have 130 students from birth to 21 years old attending RSD.
  • We were visited at different times by the likes of Helen Keller, Harriet Beecher Stowe (author of Uncle Tom's Cabin) and Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.
  • In the late 19th century RSD established the first kindergarten in the U.S. for children who are deaf, making it a pioneer in early childhood education
  • In 2018, RSD established what is believed to be the first natural playground/outdoor classroom for children who are deaf
  • An early RSD pioneer and educator Edmund Lyon created a phonetically based sign language "The Lyon Phonetic Manual' which was highly regarded and used around the world. He also patented a series of items including a locomotive turntable and an automobile starter which bypassed the use of a hand crank

A portion of the proceeds of this Fund Duel will go to the National Junior Association of the Deaf (Jr. NAD).

Jr. Nad is an organization of, by, and for deaf and hard of hearing youth that focuses on developing interest and leadership among deaf students in state associations, schools, and/or organizations of the deaf.

Jr. NAD will be hosting its National Jr. NAD Conference in Rochester, NY from November 6 - 10, 2019! This national conference will welcome students from the Jr. NAD chapters across the United States.
