The goal of the FL3 Center is to increase family engagement and leadership, and strengthen family support in Early Hearing Detection & Intervention (EHDI) systems of care in order to enable families to optimize the language, literacy, and social-emotional development of their children who are deaf or hard of hearing.

The FL3 Center serves as a technical resource center for parents and caregivers of children who are D/HH including those from underrepresented populations, family leaders, family-based organizations, and EHDI program recipients and stakeholders. The work will focus on several key areas including, technical assistance, training and education, resource development, communication and dissemination, quality improvement methodology and evaluation, evidence-based best practices, policy initiatives, and national partnerships.

The Family Leadership in Language and Learning (FL3) Center is a funding award from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). This new award provides continued funding for the period of April 1st, 2020 – March 31st, 2024.
