The Chevron Pilbara Ear Health Program, delivered by Telethon Speech & Hearing, visits the school every term and offers a free hearing and ear health screening check for students. A screener performs some general tests which may include looking in your child’s ear with an ear light, plus giving your child two quick examinations to measure how well the ear is working plus performing a basic hearing test. Ear disease can cause hearing loss, and hearing loss stops children accessing education. Ear disease is significantly higher among Aboriginal children and has life long consequences without early prevention and treatment. For more information about the program please contact Telethon Speech and Hearing on 9387 9888.
