Kansas Commission
For the Deaf & Hard of Hearing

Welcome to KCDHH!

For the past 40 years, KCDHH has worked with agencies and organizations throughout Kansas to assure availability and coordination of services, including communication access and resources related to hearing loss.  Additional services include advocacy, public education and policy guidance.  Resources are being brought together on this new website giving the public greater access to information when needed.  We intend to expand resources with videos and other useful links.

Please take the opportunity to view the video below from our ABOUT page.  We hope to continue to expand the site and will keep you informed of the exciting developments in the weeks to come.
