First Voice welcomes The Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children (RIDBC) as a new member organisation. Joining the First Voice Board as a Director and representative for RIDBC is Bart Cavalletto, Director, Services RIDBC.

RIDBC will join First Voice as leaders within the early childhood hearing loss sector, advocating for our world-class early intervention services and systemic integration for children who are deaf or hard of hearing. First Voice members support the majority of children under six with hearing loss in Australia and the vast majority of families who have chosen a hearing and speaking future for their children.

First Voice plays a leadership role within the early childhood hearing loss sector, advocating for our world-class early intervention services and systemic integration for children who are deaf or hard of hearing. We work with government and other organisations to influence public policy and clinical practice related to services for children who are deaf or hard of hearing.
