Hear and Say are hearing loss and speech development experts.

Hear to Live

Young adults who are deaf or hard of hearing may have previously received specialised support from their educators, as well as from their family, and upon leaving school the responsibility shifts to them. Our Hear to Live group program is designed to help them to take an active role in advocating for yourself and provides guidance in seeking out appropriate supports.

Program Benefits

  • Hear to Live has a strong emphasis on the specific self-advocacy skills that are crucial to the post-school success of young people who have hearing loss. These skills include:
  • Understanding their own hearing loss, and strategies to address their communication challenges
  • The best use and maintenance of their hearing aids, cochlear implants, and other listening devices
  • Awareness of appropriate accommodations in workplace and post-secondary education settings
  • The ability to identify and access technological and other supports and accommodations
  • Understanding their legal rights in post-secondary education and the workplace
  • Knowing when and how to request help
  • Knowing how and deciding when to disclose their hearing loss

Maia’s Story

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.
