Bridging the gap between science and better hearing for all.

Participate in our research

Calling for research participants for our upcoming projects

By participating in one of our research studies, you are playing a vital role in advancing our knowledge about hearing loss. You are also making a contribution to the evidence base that helps ensure the best possible outcomes for children with hearing loss.

Volunteers like you really do make such a difference. Please consider becoming a research participant for Hear and Say today.

Are you a parent or carer of a child with hearing loss or a young person with hearing loss? Would you like to provide input about future mental health care for children with hearing loss?

Child and Youth Mental Health Service (CYMHS) are looking for parents of children with hearing loss and young people with a hearing loss to complete a questionnaire about mental health services. The project is looking at mental health support services for children with hearing loss and the difficulties families or young people face when trying to access support for mental health and wellbeing.

Your responses will help us find out what current services provide, what people do/do not know and how we can work together to improve future mental health care for children with hearing loss.

Complete the online questionnaire

Any questions about the survey or project can be directed to Nicole Davolio (Deafness Mental Health Coordinator- LSLS Cert AVT, Speech Pathologist)
