Parent Advisers for Hearing Impaired Pre School Children

This is a community and regionally based service. A Family centred approach is used by working in partnership with families to promote the optimum development of their child. Individual programs are designed for families to encourage their child’s listening, communication, speech and language development using age appropriate play materials. Support and education is provided to early childhood staff in childcare and preschool settings. Opportunities for families to meet each other are offered.

Parent Advisers are qualified Teachers of the Deaf, based in early intervention teams which may include speech pathology, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, psychology, social worker, and educational advisers. Interpreters for families are available.
