Home Intervention

Trained HI specialists visit an assigned family every 2 weeks to teach a tailor-made lesson based on our curriculum and adapted to suit the family’s needs. Lessons always have a language focus and include the practical challenges of raising deaf children such as helping babies keep their amplification devices on, learning to adapt in their unique home environment, engaging with siblings.


Our interventionists are culturally matched to the family, so that the intimacy of working in a home environment is comfortable for everyone. Language assessments are done at regular intervals to assess progress and consequently guide the family further.

Our interventionists come from a variety of backgrounds, some are qualified as teachers, others audiologists, speech therapists, social workers and a wide variety of other vocational experiences. Families value and appreciate their interventionist’s role, of walking alongside them on their journey, in a very practical way.
