Sound Outcomes

Sounds Outcomes is an annual review of speech and language outcomes of children enrolled in early intervention programs across First Voice member and affiliated centers.

Sound Connections

Sound Connections was a three-year research project conducted by First Voice from 2011 to 2014 across its six member and affiliated centers to investigate the listening, spoken language and social inclusion outcomes of children with hearing loss who received listening and spoken language early intervention. The project was funded by a Telstra Foundation Social Innovation Grant.
