Information and Resources

For many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, ear and hearing trouble starts before they turn two. It’s a time when they are learning to listen, yarn and communicate. These skills are important for building relationships, learning culture and learning in school.
Hearing Australia has developed a range of Information resources to help parents, carers, families and communities, as well as health and education professionals and workers better understand the issues around ear health and hearing in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children.
These resources tell you:

  • what you need to know to help prevent ear infections and hearing loss in children
  • where and how to get help
  • about the assessments and the treatment / management options
  • how you can help raise awareness of the program in your communities and local areas to enlist more children into the program and prevent hearing loss.

The following links will take to you to each of the resources, which you can download and print as needed.
