We are fortunate to have received generous funding from Quota International that will 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. You will even get the chance to meet Quota members at morning tea as part of the telepractice camp activities, and the chance to say thank-you!

Individual appointments will be funded through your NDIS plan.

For families with children who have cochlear implants who are attending audiology appointments during the camp, Patient Travel Subsidy Scheme (PTSS) funding will be used for travel.

A member of our Business Support Team will be in contact to see if you require travel and accommodation bookings and will organise on your behalf. You are of course also 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, please bring your own lunch and snacks on Tuesday and Wednesday. 

With so many 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.

Loud Shirt Day

Get loud for the thousands of children with hearing loss. Taking part is easy – all you need is a loud shirt!

2020-21 Annual Report

Read about the 300 babies born with hearing loss in Australia each year, and how Hear and Say continued to change lives this year.

Changing lives, together

Your gift will help deliver critical services, so babies born deaf can hear their parents say, “I love you.”

Workplace giving

“The program gives our staff a sense of pride in the company and for the work they do at Sci-Fleet." – Allison Scifleet, Guest Experience Manager, Sci-Fleet Motors.

Spotlight on single-sided deafness

“This research project is very exciting because it helps to show that children who receive a cochlear implant for single-sided deafness saw significant improvements in their day-to-day hearing abilities, which are maintained over time."

Cycling and hearing loss: staying safe on the roads

“People kept mentioning to me that I was missing parts of conversations, and in crowded environments I was finding it very difficult to hear and engage with others."
