Hearing health outreach services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people in the Northern Territory: 2012–13 to 2014–15

This is the third annual report on hearing health outreach services provided to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people in the Northern Territory, funded by the Australian Government. It reports on outreach audiology, ENT teleotology, and Child Hearing Health Coordinator services provided from July 2012 to June 2015. There is evidence to suggest the effectiveness of these programs in improving ear and hearing health among service recipients—of almost 1,000 children and young people who received multiple outreach audiology services in 2012–15 and who had hearing loss at their first service, one-third had no hearing loss at their most recent service.
