Description of charity's activities and outcomes
The primary objective of Hear and Say is to open worlds to create better futures by optimising our unique approach to research, service delivery and transformative technology to ensure the best outcomes for people with hearing loss and beyond. Hear and Say has proved that deaf children and people with hearing loss can learn to listen, hear and speak through a combination of early diagnosis, advances in hearing technology and world leading listening and spoken language therapies, which teaches parents to teach their children to listen and speak. The outcomes for these children is for their language and literacy to be at the same level as their hearing peers, giving these children the best opportunity in their family, community, educational settings and future. Our Strategic priorities are: Excellence in clinical practice and research, sustainability- build on existing programs, address current resourcing needs and identify and develop new programs. Advocacy- the development, marketing and delivery of professional training programs and influencing public policy and awareness. In each of the past six years, 100% of children in Hear and Say Early Intervention Program graduated to full inclusion in mainstream educational setting. The most recent parent survey showed the vast majority of parents were ‘very satisfied’ with Hear and Say’s overall service.
