    get involved at your school

    18 October 2013 is Loud Shirt Day and schools can participate by allowing students to "wear their support" and make a donation to the First Voice Centre in their state.

    Loud Shirt Day is perfect to engage your school in a simple fundraiser. Use this opportunity to inform students how deaf children can be fully integrated into the school community... many kids don't realise that deaf children who learn to speak can attend mainstream schools and reach their full potential.

    If 18 October 2013 is not convenient for your school, pick another date that suits, just let us know.

    THANK YOU

    All funds raised through Loud Shirt Day will give the gift of sound and speech to deaf children.

    Did you know that hearing loss is one of the very few disabilities that can be all but overcome with early detection and intensive early intervention.

    The family-based therapy programs offered by First Voice centres result in more than 90% of children entering mainstream school with their hearing peers.

SAVANNAH'S STORY...

“The last thing I expected when I found out I was pregnant
for the third time, was that anything would go wrong. I had smooth sailing pregnancies with Hayden & Blake (apart
from the aches & pains) but I never had any health
problems otherwise. So of course it never entered my
mind that I would this time around.

Savannah was first picked up for her hearing loss at
the Newborn Screening Test they did in the hospital.
Savannah had an "inconclusive" result.
