Early intervention is vital with hearing loss. Our family-centred Early Intervention Program focuses on guiding and coaching you as parents to seize every opportunity in day-to-day life to teach your child to listen and speak. We’ll work with you to involve your child in every day experiences in your home, community and networks in order to fully develop their spoken language.

Our results

Our results

Our graduating children often have the same spoken-language skills as normally-hearing children of the same age – a testament to the incredible skill and hard work of their families and our clinicians. As a result, children are as well prepared as possible for school: able to listen in their classroom, understand their teacher, able to join discussions in class, and talk with friends.
