Telethon Speech & Hearing’s Wembley campus houses a range of specialised libraries to support the needs of our families and staff.
1. Auditory-Verbal Library
The Centre’s Auditory-Verbal Library is an integral part of the Auditory-Verbal Program at the Centre. The library houses toys and activities which are used during AV Therapy sessions with the Centre’s Auditory-Verbal Therapists and can be lent to parents to take home. Play activities experienced during therapy sessions can then be repeated in the home environment with the use of carefully chosen toys. The activities chosen encourage the development of auditory and spoken language development. All resources are checked out by an Auditory-Verbal Therapist.
2. Professional Library
Located in the Boardroom at Telethon Speech & Hearing, the Professional Library includes books, journals, assessments and manuals specialising in hearing and speech impairments, education, psychology and occupational therapy. The library acts as an aid to teachers and parents to expand their knowledge and have access to latest information in their area of interest.
3. Jill Reid Children’s Library
Situated in the Bill and Rhonda Wyllie Early Childhood Learning Centre, the Jill Reid Children's Library encourages weekly visits from the Chatterbox Kindergarten Group and Talkabout 4 and 5. Children can borrow books, learn basic library skills and listen to story-telling sessions.
4. Early Literacy Library (coming soon)
Telethon Speech & Hearing will house the state’s first dedicated early literacy library at the new Bendat Parent and Community Centre. To see the progress of the new building, please click here.
Monday, Wednesday and Thursday - 9.00am to 3.15pm
