Ameilia loves counting and naming all the colors with her teacher. 

In fact, when it comes to colors Amelia is an expert.

When Amelia was diagnosed with profound hearing loss, her mother moved her all the way from Puerto Rico to Houston, Texas, so that she could recieve the best care possible at The Center for Hearing and Speech.

With technology, help from the trained experts at The Center for Hearing and Speech and her mother’s determination, Amelia is able to learn the critical language skills that will give her the brightest future.


For 70 years, The Center for Hearing and Speech has been improving the lives of children and their families through our clinical, education and support services. As Houston’s residents continue to recover from the devastation of Hurricane Harvey, we need your support now more than ever. Your gift can help to ensure that all children with hearing loss, regardless of their family income, are on the path to successful, independent lives.

Our wish this holiday season is to reach $20,000 in contributions to help children learn to listen and speak. Look at what your gift makes possible:

·         With your donation, many deaf children will dance to their favorite songs, skip to jingle bells and hear joyful laughter this holiday season.

·        Your gift will support the only school in the region that focuses on spoken language for deaf children.

·         Your gift helps ensure children are identified early, receive quality care, and have the opportunity to listen and speak.

Looking for a thoughtful gift for the person who has everything? Give the gift of hearing and speech this season in their honor.
