Summary

Young children with hearing loss in Washington, DC are at risk of not receiving proper diagnostics and interventions that will ensure their healthy development due to lack of access. Chattering Children wants to travel to these children in their neighborhoods and provide the necessary diagnostics free-of-charge and inform their families/caregivers about the options for intervention.

Challenge

In low-income neighborhoods in Washington, DC, there are children with hearing loss who are not receiving interventions due limited testing, access and information. Left untreated, hearing loss can have a devastating, life-long impact on a child's verbal, reading, motor and social skills. We hope to reach a minimum of 30 children in their neighborhoods, homes and schools to test and diagnose their hearing loss, and provide support and information to families for intervention.

Solution

Chattering Children has the clinicians who can travel to these at-risk children to provide hearing evaluations and recommendations for interventions free of charge. They know the best practices for treating hearing loss, the use of hearing aids and cochlear implants and how to teach families to care for a child with hearing loss to ensure the best possible outcomes. Funding will provide staffing, equipment and supplies necessary to serve many children with hearing loss.

Long-Term Impact

This project will enable us to provide ongoing diagnoses for many young children with hearing loss so that they can receive the interventions and support to become fully engaged members of their families, schools, communities and society as a whole, and be able to reach their full potential as individuals.
