“It is such a joy to celebrate the accomplishments of our 80 full-time students at the annual awards day program,” said DuBard School Director Maureen Martin. “Our students, with the support of their families, have worked very hard to progress throughout the year. We especially wish the very best to the 15 students who will return to their local school districts in August.”

The DuBard School for Language Disorders was established in 1962 and is a clinical division of the Southern Miss Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences. The school serves children with severe language/speech disorders, including the written language disorder of dyslexia, and/or hearing impairments and provides guidance and counseling for parents and families of the children.
