Overview

The Deaf and Hard of Hearing Child Resilience Center was created to address the gap between children who have experienced trauma and the mental health services they deserve.

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.

The goals of our center are:

  • Creating culturally and linguistically accessible tools to assess trauma symptoms and trauma-related behaviors in deaf and hard of hearing children and youth.
  • Increasing the number of evidence-based trauma-focused interventions adapted for deaf and hard of hearing children and youth.
  • Growing the number of mental health professionals trained in culturally and linguistically accessible evidence-based trauma-focused interventions.
  • Developing new training, resources, and screening materials to educate providers and families about the unique cultural and linguistic needs of deaf and hard of hearing children.
