Center for Childhood Communication

Family Wellness Services

Parents and children who are hard of hearing or deaf face the day-to-day stresses that come with hearing loss and may need to practice skills to make life easier. At the Center for Childhood Communication, we believe that the most important ingredient for a child’s healthy development and success is the child’s family. To support our patients and their families, we established the Family Wellness Services in 2000.

Our services

Our Family Wellness Services include individual and family counseling, consultations and referrals to mental health professionals, advocacy, information and resources, and introductions to peers or adults with similar hearing loss.
