CCHAT Center is an auditory/oral program where children who are deaf or hard of hearing learn to listen and develop spoken language.
CCHAT Center is a program devoted to teaching children who are deaf and hard of hearing to listen and talk. What started out in 1996 as a program serving 12 children learning to listen and develop spoken language has grown into a regional program providing center-based services to more than 55 children with hearing loss from 22 different school districts and mainstream support services to more than 250 students from eight school districts across five counties annually. CCHAT is state certified as a nonpublic school and is one of two auditory/oral 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 cognitive skills. With these skills they can actively participate in their local schools and within the community at large.
