A collective impact to improve childhood outcomes - Telethon Speech and Hearing

A collective impact to improve childhood outcomes

On Friday 2nd November, Telethon Speech & Hearing had a special visit from a group of young mums and their children.

Arriving from the Port School Young Parent Centre, these mums and bubs were part of a unique screening program providing health and hearing checks for their children.  Some of these children needed an extra check from our Audiology team.

Collaborating with Connecting Community for Kids, our Audiologists saw 7 children. Of this number, 6 need medical review and intervention for hearing loss or related problems. Without this collaboration, these children would have remained with undiagnosed hearing loss and its ongoing consequences.

Regular hearing checks as your child grows is highly recommended. Even a mild or partial hearing loss can affect a child’s ability to speak and understand language. Call 9387 9888 or use our online form to request an appointment with us today.
