Telethon Speech & Hearing (TSH) is a Western Australian based not-for-profit organisation, registered charity and independent school offering quality diagnostic, therapy and support services for children with hearing loss and speech and language delays.
We are a registered NDIS provider and offer essential early intervention and school support services to ensure children overcome these disabilities and achieve success in education and future good employment outcomes.
Telethon Speech & Hearing is also a registered independent school providing exceptional programs for children with hearing loss and speech and language delays. Telethon Speech & Hearing originated with a group of parents who were dedicated to pursuing the best oral education for their profoundly deaf children. The parents decided to start a school of their own. With five students, no premises, little money and experience, they made a commitment to pursue the very best oral education for their children and opened a school in 1967. From these humble beginnings, Telethon Speech & Hearing has grown to become one of Western Australia’s premier providers of services and support for children with ear health, hearing, and speech and language concerns.
Telethon Speech & Hearing is committed to helping children reach their full potential in life despite the hurdles they face due to hearing loss or speech and language disorders.
To this aim, Telethon Speech & Hearing provides a number of in-house services including audiology, speech pathology, psychology and occupational therapy services combined with specialist education services through a range of professionals from multiple disciplines designed to help the children acquire the skills needed for success in formal schooling. We call this our “whole of life” approach, as Telethon Speech & Hearing’s multidisciplinary range of onsite services gives families the convenience of one location and the comfort of dealing with one inclusive, professional organisation to help their children reach their true potential.
Telethon Speech & Hearing supports children, families, adults and carers by offering:
- Early intervention and school support programs for children with hearing loss;
- Early intervention for children with speech and language difficulties;
- Hearing services for newborns, toddlers and children.
Telethon Speech & Hearing is proud to be a part of the Telethon family and fits its purpose of improving the health and well-being of all children.
