This report presents data on Indigenous children who were a part of the Child Hearing Health Coordinator (CHHC) program which ran in the Northern Territory in 2012 and 2013. During that time, 1,541 children were provided with 1,807 audiology services. The report outlines the results for 174 of the children, who participated in the CHHC program and presented for 181 visits. Of the children who received audiology services, 72% were diagnosed with at least one type of middle ear condition and about 10% had moderate, severe or profound hearing impairment.
