Hear and Say Live Crowdfunding Event
Thank you for joining us at Hear and Say’s very first live crowdfunding event, and for your generous pledge. Together, we are changing lives for children and families impacted by hearing loss.
“It came as a complete shock when Mia was diagnosed with a permanent hearing loss after further testing. Thankfully we found Hear and Say and through their Early Intervention program, we have learned all the skills to help Mia listen and speak. We were surprised to begin the journey again with our second daughter Ava, but this time full of confidence and certainty in knowing with Hear and Say we were in the best hands.” – Michael, dad to Mia and Ava

Hear and Say’s paediatric audiology program works with over 270 children across a range of auditory health services including diagnostic assessments and cochlear implant programming.

Hear and Say’s Early Intervention Program provides Listening and Spoken Language Therapy for around 300 children each year from birth to prep-age who are identified with a hearing loss. Listening and Spoken Language Specialists work in partnership with parents to teach their children to hear, listen and speak, as parents are the key facilitators of their child’s listening and spoken language skills every day.

Hear to Learn
‘Hear to Learn’, Hear and Say’s school screening program has screened the hearing of over 42,000 children across Queensland as they start their school journey. Hear and Say estimates that about one in five prep-aged children are not hearing optimally in the classroom on any one day, and hearing is vital to a child’s learning journey in the school environment. The screening program ensures the children who need help are referred on to receive the support they need.

At 9.10pm on 24 October 2013 our beautiful daughter Maia was born.
The moment of elation was short-lived as we immediately noticed her left ear was missing. I frantically looked to the medical team around me for answers but received none.
Panic set in as we waited 4 days in hospital for an ENT to explain her condition, by which point we already had all the answers from Simone, who runs the Microtia and Atresia Program at Hear and Say.
