Description

The Hearing House enables deaf and hearing impaired children and adults to listen and speak.

Today, thanks to scientific advances in hearing aids and the development of cochlear implants, people who are profoundly deaf can have access to sound and can listen and speak. However, early intervention for profoundly deaf children is critical so that the brain doesn't shut down the neural pathways that enable us to hear.

Using an advanced and specialised therapy called Auditory-Verbal Therapy, The Hearing House teaches deaf and hearing impaired children to speak clearly and naturally like their hearing peers and we aim for children to attend mainstream school by age five. We also provide paediatric audiology services, a preschool (for both hearing impaired and community children), parent support groups, a transition to school programme and outreach services for the wider northern region.

Adults who need, or have, a cochlear implant are given access to sound once again. We aim to get adults who have suffered a sudden or gradual hearing loss, and are now severely or profoundly deaf, back into the work force, back into their social circles and into society as a whole.

The Hearing House is a centre for children, parents and adults where all services are available at one location, and is considered New Zealand’s first centre of excellence in habilitation for children with significant hearing loss.
