For the past 85 years, HEAR Wisconsin, formerly the Center for Communication, Hearing & Deafness and earlier the Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing) has been providing needed services to children and adults throughout Wisconsin. Its mission is to provide and promote state-of-the-art services and technologies that enhance the quality of life of individuals with hearing loss. We are Wisconsin's hearing and speech resource.
Because there is no one right way for every person or family to cope with the challenges of hearing loss, CCHD provides services across the spectrum of communication and technology options. At CCHD, clients have the opportunity to make decisions and select a treatment plan that best meets their needs and goals.
Our diverse team of professionals includes Speech-Language Pathologists, Audiologists, Sign Language Interpreters and Wisconsin’s only Certified Auditory-Verbal Therapist, as well as other specialists in Deaf education and assistive technology.
Commlink, a Division of HEAR Wisconsin provides the services in English and Spanish.
