The Katherine Hamm Center is a listening, spoken language and literacy program for children who are deaf or hard of hearing and their families. Founded in 1938, the Hamm Center offers the crucial early audiological intervention programs that children birth through age six with assistive listening devices need to develop listening, language and literacy skills.

Our program includes intensive education and training for families to learn the techniques and strategies needed for them to (1) capitalize on their child’s early brain develop and (2) foster listening and spoken language skills in their child. Because this two-pronged approach builds the strongest possible foundation in language acquisition, our goal is for our students to leave the Hamm Center as soon as possible on a trajectory to read proficiently by the end of third grade.
