Our Impact

29 Sep 2020

We recently released our Impact Report video showcasing the incredible outcomes of children completing our Early Intervention Program. While we can see that, with thanks to you, children with hearing loss have made incredible gains, we know we still have a long way to go.

At the end of 2019 less than 40% of children aged 0-14 being supported by Hearing Australia had an NDIS plan to receive the specialist support they need (6,345 from 16,566). A proportion of the missing children are not eligible for the NDIS, however the problems don’t stop there, with the NDIS reporting in its most recent Quarterly Report that only 52% of parents know what services their child needs to promote their learning and development.
