In Australia, 1 in 2 children with hearing loss are not getting the specialist support they need. This needs to change.
4 days after birth, little Zaria did not pass the newborn hearing test. Her mum and dad held onto hope that it could be easily fixed, but the follow-up tests confirmed the worst, Zaria had profound hearing loss in both ears.
Luckily, Zaria and her family were referred to The Shepherd Centre, where they were told Zaria could develop spoken language to reach her full potential.
But what if I told you that 1 in 2 children with hearing loss in Australia are not receiving this specialist support?
