At Hear and Say, our clinicians, who are experienced in working with children with hearing loss, have designed specific programs for families at different stages of their hearing journey.
Our Group Programs combine fun and learning in a group environment while supporting children to socialise with others and gain confidence.
In addition to developing life skills, Hear and Say’s Group Programs offer a great opportunity for our families to meet together, share experiences and build friendships for life.

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.
