The Hearing House A First Voice Centre

Welcome to
The Hearing House

Finding out your child has a hearing loss comes as an enormous shock to most parents and caregivers. The Hearing House provides specialized support and clinical expertise for families of children in this situation. If your GP or audiologist refers your child to The Hearing House that is the first step in trying to help your deaf child develop language like their hearing friends. What most people don’t realize is that even children who are profoundly deaf can these days develop natural sounding speech and participate fully in the hearing world – talking on the phone, listening to music and hearing their family say they love them. Follow the links below to find out more how we can help you and your child or call us on 09 579 2333 to talk to The Hearing House team.
