Imagine the world of children who are born unable to hear their parents’ voices, listen to soothing music, learn nursery rhymes, or use language to communicate.
There are approximately 20,000 children and adolescents in Australia today who have a hearing impairment, and every year, around 500 Australian babies are born with a hearing loss.
Taralye supports children who are deaf or hard of hearing, and in 2016, we supported 6,500 children and their families. Our work in audiology, early intervention, and early-childhood development are all aimed towards realising our goal of giving these children the opportunity to learn, listen, and speak to their full potential.
Your donation can change the world of these children and their families.
Early intervention enables children who are deaf or hard of hearing to learn language and social skills at par with their hearing peers by the time they start school. A 2017 Deloitte study shows that every dollar invested on early intervention for deaf children yields a $2.20 return in terms of social, educational, vocational, and economic benefits. This means that they achieve well in school and grow into productive and gainfully employed members of society.
So donate now to get the kids talking.
