Community for Hearing Loss Awareness Training and Supports

CHATS Community for Hearing Loss Awareness Training and Supports

We want EVERY child with hearing loss to flourish by way of meeting the parents' and families' needs. Through the resources offered and providing family-to-family support, we hope to ensure that our caregivers and children who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing not only have their needs met but can thrive together. Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) exists to identify infants with hearing loss or who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing as early as possible so families can make decisions that work best for them

Our staff and family support parents have walked the challenging path of having a child that is deaf, hard of hearing or losing hearing. They can provide a listening ear, share their experiences, ease your fears and give you hope.

We Provide Connections To:


Support Groups

Online Support


Awareness & Advocacy
