The Learning Center for the Deaf (TLC) is a world famous school started and grown right here in Framingham. TLC started 50 years ago with approximately 20 students and 20 staff.  The school was founded by Warren Sdchwab whose son, David was deal.  Warren wanted a place where David could grow to his potential.  TLC was set up with the revolutionary concept of total communication: sign language, mouthing the words and body language.  TLC is now a recognized leader in deaf education internationally!!  In the last 20 years, the school has further expanded with outreach programs, supporting deaf students in the public school system, interpreting for private and public events.  As soon as  parent has an indication that their child is deaf or hard of hearing, the school is ready to assist. TLC competes in sporting events, math and book discussion competitions, and interacts with other schools for the deaf nationally.
