Deaf and Hard of Hearing Child Resilience Center
Addressing trauma among underserved deaf and hard of hearing children.
Making a way for new innovations, treatment, and training.
Closing the gap between mental health services and accessibility.
Deaf and hard of hearing children and youth are typically at a higher risk for trauma exposure than the general child population due to the unique trauma experienced from everyday communication barriers.
Yet, the number of trauma-informed and linguistically accessible treatments and mental health measures for deaf and hard of hearing remain severely limited. We’re here to change that.
We’ve developed a multi-tier approach to improve the quality of services and to eliminate health disparities for deaf children, adolescents, and their families.
Our goals include:
Dollar amount of federal funds awarded: $597,892 from September 30, 2023 to September 29, 2024
Percentage total cost of the program financed with federal funding: 100%
Percentage and dollar amount of the total costs funded by non-governmental sources: 0%
