PROGRAM DETAILS

Communication is critical for learning and development. If a child has hearing loss and does not receive adequate support, they can experience challenges with communication, school success and social skills.

Any Baby Can’s Children’s Hearing Aid Texas (CHAT) program assists families every step of the way through auditory testing, case management and intervention. For families who choose to use assistive listening devices, Any Baby Can may help pay for devices if the child’s insurance does not.

"I had a lot going on and was really overwhelmed. I didn’t have to travel to anyone’s office or submit 10 forms of paperwork. Any Baby Can makes it easy for families when it seems like nothing else is. Honestly, if it had been a hurdle, I don’t think I would have been able to juggle it all."

"Any Baby Can gave me instant help! I had a binder of resources that I needed to check out but never had the time to tackle it. My case manager took it over and had answers in a week. Plus she is my advocate at school Admission, Review and Dismissal (ARD) meetings."
