Childhood Communication Center
The Childhood Communication Center (CCC) provides care for children with hearing loss and speech problems. Our doctors, surgeons, geneticists, audiologists, speech and language pathologists and other specialists offer the most comprehensive range of pediatric hearing and speech services in the Pacific Northwest. We offer the only program in the region to evaluate voice disorders in children.
The center includes several programs and clinics, including the Cochlear Implant Program (PDF [Spanish]), Hearing Loss Clinic (PDF [Spanish]), Voice Clinic, VPI Clinic, Family Conversations Early Intervention Program, Augmentative and Alternative Communication Program, Paradoxical Vocal Fold Movement Program and other services. Our care team identifies the causes of communication disorders and provides the most advanced therapies — including the latest hearing aid technology. The CCC works closely with the Washington Early Hearing Loss Detection Diagnosis and Intervention Program (EHDDI). We also offer ongoing support for children and their families.
