Family Resource Center

The Family Resource Center (FRC) offers an array of programs throughout the year to address hearing loss and its impact on the individual and the family across the life span. 

CHC’s Family Resource Center, which includes the Muriel and Murry Kalik Connection Center, provides information and support so that parents and family members can make informed decisions to address their individual needs.

The goal of the Family Resource Center (FRC) which includes the Muriel and Murry Kalik Connection Center, is to support and empower families as they navigate complicated educational, emotional and social issues related to childhood deafness and auditory challenges. Through the FRC, CHC psychologists, social workers, audiologists, speech therapists and educators take the time that is truly needed to provide support, practical advice, and crucial referrals to families.

 

The programs span across all clinical disciplines of the agency:
 

  • Communications

  • Audiology

  • Emotional Health and Wellness

  • Educational Support 

 

Our holistic approach addresses the developmental, social, emotional, and academic impact of hearing loss not only on the child but the entire family as well.
