The Center for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Education serves all Indiana deaf and hard of hearing children ages birth until they leave school. The Center provides assessment, services, information, resources and recommendations related to communication, language development, and education of deaf and hard of hearing children. The Center follows children as they grow (with parental permission) and works with early intervention programs and schools to achieve positive long-term outcomes.

The Center for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Education (CDHHE) was established through Indiana Code 20-35-11 by the Indiana General Assembly and opened on July 1, 2013. Through the Center, the Indiana Department of Health works with families and professionals to ensure that children receive important follow-up and other services.

We value:

  • Families as decision-makers
  • Self-advocacy
  • Unlimited potential
  • Collaborative relationships
  • Quality services
