About the camp
The Telepractice Camp is a three-day program that includes individual listening and spoken language and audiology appointments, social skills groups as well as parent education and support. This is a great opportunity to connect with other Hear and Say families who live regionally.

Through the generous support of our philanthropic partners, we are able to pay for one adult and one child’s travel and accommodation per family. Any additional family members who wish to attend will need to be self-funded.
Individual appointments will be funded through your NDIS plan. For families with children who have cochlear implants and are attending audiology appointments during the camp, Patient Travel Subsidy Scheme (PTSS) funding may be used for travel as appropriate.
Hear and Say will organise flights and accommodation through a travel agent. A member of Hear and Say’s Business Support Team will be in contact to see if you require travel and accommodation bookings and collect initial information and then a travel agent will be in touch to finalise bookings. You are of course welcome to make your own arrangements should you wish to stay with family or friends for example.
Morning tea and lunch will be provided on Monday as well as morning tea on Tuesday. Please bring your own lunch and snacks on Tuesday and Wednesday.
With a number of families visiting all at once, your listening and spoken language lesson may not be with your usual therapist. They will be around the building though and would love to say hello in the breaks.
