Diagnosed With Hearing Loss
Telethon Speech & Hearing offers two programs to help children affected with hearing loss.
Early Intervention Program
Telethon Speech & Hearing provides early intervention for the management of your child’s hearing loss.
If your child does have a hearing loss, early intervention is extremely important to ensure they get the help they need. At Telethon Speech & Hearing, we find that a multi-disciplinary approach works best.
We run individual and group therapy sessions with our team of Allied Health professionals such as Auditory Verbal Therapists, Speech Pathologists, Psychologists and Occupational Therapists.
Although newborn hearing screenings can detect hearing loss at birth, hearing loss can occur at any age.
If you have concerns about your child’s hearing or language development contact us for an assessment.

School Support Program
TSH runs a comprehensive in-school support program for students with hearing loss from kindergarten to Year 12 at our partner primary and secondary schools. The program is designed for students who use oral communication, and provides support to maximise their active participation in mainstream schools.
The program is delivered at nine partner mainstream schools. In each school, our support program is staffed by an outstanding multidisciplinary team of professionals to ensure students have the highest level of specialist assistance and advice.
Our multi-disciplinary team includes Teachers of the Deaf, Psychologists, Speech Pathologists, Audiologists, Occupational Therapists, Notetakers and Educational Assistants who demonstrate the principles of professional collaboration and exemplary instructional practice. Students have full access to the school curriculum in each location and may graduate to a full range of post-school options including TAFE, University, VET, and other pathways.
