Research bridges the gap between science and better hearing, by providing practical solutions for people impacted by hearing loss.

Through collaborations with academic, clinical and industry experts, our research aimes to continually advance the clinical knowledge underpinning all Hear and Say programs. Using evidence-based initiatives and support also enables us to advocate for the importance of early identification and intervention for those with hearing loss.

Hear and Say’s research spans many aspects of the hearing, listening, and speaking journey. Current research topics include:

  • Evaluation of early intervention – Listening and Spoken Language
  • Impact of parental stress and engagement on early intervention
  • Maximising outcomes for children with hearing loss who have additional considerations
  • Hearing health across the lifespan
  • Mental health and hearing loss
