The CCHAT Center - Sacramento is a school devoted to teaching deaf and hard of hearing children to listen and develop spoken language. Currently, over 60 children are benefiting from CCHAT's program. CCHAT is state certified as a nonpublic school and is one of two auditory/oral programs serving deaf children in Northern California.
Children attending CCHAT utilize a variety of amplification systems including hearing aids, cochlear implants and personal FM systems. Through a program of individualized language therapy and a creative and imaginative curriculum, children develop competency in communication, social, and academic skills. With these skills they can actively participate in their local schools and within the community at large.
Children's Choice for Hearing and Talking (CCHAT) Center Sacramento has been awarded a $50,000 grant from the RCA Community Fund at the Sacramento Region Community Foundation. The grant aims to enhance the Sacramento community. CCHAT will use the grant in order to support a new initiative focused on increasing language and literacy outcomes for Spanish speaking children who are deaf or hard of hearing in the region. The new program, Hearing and Healthcare for All, includes adding a bilingual Speech-Language Pathology Assistant to CCHAT's speech therapy department as well as cultural and language sensitivity training for all current CCHAT employees. CCHAT is the only auditory program for children with hearing loss in the greater Sacramento area and strives to implement the latest best practices to help all children with hearing loss. RCA's generous support will enhance the community by helping children with hearing loss meet their potential as future community members.
