About this Event

Hear For You is a place like no other – it’s a place where young deaf or hard of hearing teenagers can hang out amongst other peers, have lots of fun and make lots of friends. Our mentors understand and remember well the challenges that a young deaf or hard of hearing teenager can experience.

Our sessions bring together groups of teenagers to realise that deafness is more of a “difference” than a disadvantage. We show you that they are not alone, to inspire them, and to share hints and tips on how to deal with all the obstacles that come with deafness.

We want to give you the opportunity to share your experiences with someone in the same boat, particularly when it feels like no one else understands.

We are here to help you get the best out of being deaf, to realise their dreams and live life to the full and that’s why we’re Hear For You!

FAQs

FOR Secondary School deaf/hard of hearing students (Year 7 - 12) only

Can I attend just one session and pay for that session?

This program was designed to take place over 4 sessions so the mentor-participant relationship has a chance to grow organically over time. In addition, the themes of each session builds an important bridge to to the next one so we are able to cover a wide range of topics.

We may be able to offer separate modules over the 4 sessions in the near future so check back for more updates.

What is the mentor to participant ratio?

Every teenager gets grouped into their year group (7&8, 9&10, 11&12) and each year group will have 2 mentors (1 male and 1 female). The maximum ratio is 1 mentor to 4 participants.

The ticket says it is for 'One NDIS deaf/hard of hearing teenager', does this mean I have to purchase a separate tickets for myself (parent) and siblings?

No, if you and your other children wish to accompany your deaf/hard of hearing teenager to the Parent Seminar, you are welcome to do so at no extra cost.

Can I use my current NDIS funding to cover Hear For You?

Yes this is possible. During registration for the NDIS ticket, please fill out the required information so we know if you are:

  1. NDIA Managed i.e. they pay all providers on your behalf

  2. Self-Managed i.e. the NDIA will give you the funds so you can pay your providers directly

  3. Plan-Managed i.e. the NDIA will give you funding in order to pay for a Plan Manager who will pay your providers on your behalf

You will need to give us your NDIS number and the number of hours or funding amount that you have secured with your NDIA planner.
