Children who are deaf CAN learn to listen and speak.
The Hearing House is a charity for deaf children and their families.
Our mission is to enable deaf or hearing impaired children to listen and speak. We aim to give deaf children the ability to fulfil their potential and live an independent life in a hearing and speaking world. Learn more...
The Hearing House relies on independent funding to provide its services to deaf children. Please help The Hearing House enable deaf children to listen and speak. How you can help.
Latest news and events at The Hearing House: The Hearing House has launched a new Tele AVT service so deaf children living in remote areas are able to receive therapy via Skype or video conference. These new services use technology to help deaf children learn to listen and speak. With a simple switch of a button deaf children who are unable to attend the Hearing House in Auckland can receive regular therapy via a computer. The Hearing House has been evaluating the Tele AVT programme and collecting information about how it works for families, for therapists and for other professionals such as advisors on deaf children. More work will be done in the next few months with the hope of getting more deaf children in remote areas to benefit from this exciting new service. National Park toddler Rome is the first Hearing House child to benefit from our new Tele AVT service.
