What are the benefits of our Online Telehealth System?
Our program provides expert advice in paediatric hearing loss to guide and coach parents in their local environment.
The expert team support children’s listening, literacy, language and social development using everyday equipment and daily life routines.
Your child can use their favourite toys, books or games in sessions while the team guide you through listening and spoken language development.
Sessions in the comfort of your own home allows for flexibility in schedules and limits disruptions to your program.
It also gives opportunities to invite other family members to join and be part of each child’s listening and spoken language development.
