Early Intervention

We work with families everyday to:

  • Help them understand what it means to have a baby with hearing loss
  • Connect them with families who have already been through the experience
  • Advise them how to “navigate the system” to get the best advice and services for their child
  • Connect them to appropriate supports and services, including through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

The birth of a child who is deaf or hard of hearing can be an overwhelming and isolating experience for parents and families, which is why all our early intervention, therapy, support and mentorship programs are tailored to the individual experience of each family, including their communication, education and technology needs.
