partner with us

Hear and Say was established in 1992 by Dr Dimity Dornan AM with just six children. The organisation now provides services and programs to over 500 children across six centres as well as an Outreach program for rural and remote areas. 

Our aim is to help deaf children to hear, listen and speak so they can attend a regular school, have wider career choices and can more fully participate in the hearing community. Hear and Say interfaces state-of-the-art hearing technology (digital hearing aids and implantable technology such as cochlear implants) with the Auditory-Verbal Therapy approach. Our success lies in the vital role that parents/caregivers play in teaching their children to listen and speak.
