Helping children to reach their full potential.

What is Early Intervention?

Hear and Say provides early intervention for the management of your child’s hearing loss using Auditory-Verbal Therapy. We start seeing children from as soon as they are born, until the time that your child commences compulsory schooling.

The nature and frequency of the support required varies from child to child, and your child’s needs are assessed and compared with their normally hearing peers to determine the intervention required to assist them to meet their listening and spoken language potential.

Typically each child will have their Individual Education Plan (IEP) based on developmental milestones of normal hearing children to assist parents and the Hear and Say Listening and Spoken Language Specialists to select appropriate goals in line with each child’s age and stage of development.

Parents will receive comprehensive reports at regular intervals detailing their child’s progress across all aspects of their development, including fine motor, gross motor, cognition, language, speech, social skills and more.
