As we respond to the ever-changing disruption caused by the COVID-19 outbreak, your support of our centre is more important than ever. Telethon Speech & Hearing is committed to supporting vulnerable children and families to speak, hear, connect and learn, but COVID-19 has added an extra burden on our resources.
As an Independent School, therapy provider and health provider, we have kept our school-based programs open, with extra precautions around hygiene and personal care to keep every child, family and staff member safe. Additionally, we now deliver therapy and other services using tele-based methods so families can access services online. These increased measures have put great pressure and strain on our team as we struggle to keep up with demand.
Early intervention is critical in the early years of a child’s life where there are concerns with their hearing, speech and language. It provides them with the support they need to develop learning skills that will positively impact the rest of their lives.
During these uncertain times, we will continue to provide certainty to these children and their families by offering early intervention via Teletherapy. By giving generously, you will ensure children continue to receive vital supports while those families that feel the financial impact of this crisis remain connected during the most vulnerable times.
We cannot do this without your support.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your support. This will make us all stronger.
