Ear health: do you hear what I hear

 

Overview

The Ear health: do you hear what I hear program, provides regular ear health screening to schools with high percentages of Indigenous children, as well as offering the screening within the clinic at Derbarl Yerrigan Health Services (DYHS).

This program includes a successful partnership with an ear, nose and throat specialist, Dr Harvey Coates and his team, which allows for the fast tracking of children to the hospitals for treatments and operations. Also linked with this program is the services offered by the Australian Hearing Services, who continue to support DYHS with monthly visits from an audiologist, assisting many clients with hearing aids.

The ear health team have also provided their services to children in the rural regions of Western Australia including Brookton, Quairading, Beverly and Pingelly.
