A child's hearing may change over time, often without the child, parent or teacher noticing, so it is important to monitor a child's hearing even if they have passed previous hearing tests.

 

Hearing difficulties may have a significant effect on a child's ability to learn.  Children with a hearing loss may experience speech and language delays, educational difficulties, behavioural problems and often require increased support.

HEAR AND SAY SCHOOL HEARING SCREENING PROGRAM

"The success of this program highlights to me, the need for students to have access to a screening process within the school environment.  Improved hearing will lead to improved student outcomes, and improved student outcomes is our core business."
