Among the many students receiving diplomas this graduation season, were a group of preschoolers suffering with hearing loss.

More than 20 children graduated from The Mama Lere Hearing School Wednesday, auditory school for children with hearing loss.

During the school year, the children learned to talk, understand, and read at peer level.

The school's principal said students started school using only 3 words per sentence, but now they know more than double those words.

“The red bar on the right represents the number of words they are now using which you can see is double what they started with,” said Michael Douglas.

The kids hoped to join their hearing-capable peers in kindergarten come fall.
