CCHAT teachers are experts in today's listening technologies. All of them have an understanding of what each child can hear through his or her device/s. All are trained to make the best use of classroom sound-field and fm systems that bring sound and voices directly to the children.

CCHAT Center - Sacramento

is a program devoted to teaching children who are deaf and hard of hearing to listen and develop spoken language. Currently, over 60 children are benefiting from CCHAT's center-based programs. CCHAT is state certified as a nonpublic school and is one of two listening and spoken language programs serving children who are deaf or hard of hearing 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.
