Children & young adults

Hearing Australia cares for around 14,000 children up to the age of 12 who use a hearing aid or cochlear implant and in 2020, fitted just over 2,100 children from birth to 12 years of age with their first hearing aids.1

We’ve recently launched our new resource for parents and families - the book Choices. Choices is a free resource for families of children who are newly diagnosed with hearing loss from birth to twelve years of age. The book provides valuable information to help families confidently made the right choices for their child throughout their hearing journey.

Through Choices, we make it easier for families to understand and find information about the range of hearing technology, communication and support services that are available to help them.
