Pine Tree Society
Remembering Joshua Seal
The tragic death of Joshua Seal left an enormous hole in Maine’s Deaf community. As our Director of Interpreting Services, he not only impacted the lives of Deaf people and their families, he made communication and understanding possible in countless situations as an interpreter, mentor and tireless advocate. His lasting legacy at Pine Tree Society is Pine Tree Camp’s Dirigo Experience, a life-changing summer camp experience for Deaf youth. We are committed to continuing his vision.
Assistive Technology Demo and Loan
Pine Tree Society’s assistive technology demo and loan library is exactly what it sounds like: it’s a resource library of assistive technology that people can try. With the option to test drive a new tool before buying, it not only saves money, it also helps people to find a tool that’s the right fit for their needs by trying it out before making the decision to purchase.

Early Learning Center adds new classroom to meet growing need
Based on the growing demand in our community, Pine Tree Society’s specialized preschool in Auburn has added more classroom space and is in the process of hiring additional educators to meet this tremendous need.
This fall, we welcomed 19 new students. These preschoolers have significant needs and providing early intervention and educational programming to prepare them to enter Kindergarten requires more resources and innovation than ever.
