Help Raise Awareness by Wearing a Loud Shirt on Friday
Anyone who has had problems with their ears and for a time could not hear out of one or both, can truly understand what it must be like for millions of people who live with these difficulties each day.

Hear and Say, Brisbane is a world-leading Paediatric Auditory-Verbal and Cochlear Implant Centre. This centre has been teaching deaf children to speak and listen since July 1992. Founded by Brisbane Speech Pathologist Dr Dimity Dornan AO, the name chosen represents the difficulty children experience living with hearing loss. The logo, a blue butterfly, is also a symbol of the difficulty children overcome, as butterflies cannot hear. Today the centre supports approximately 900 children annually and is now celebrating its 25th year.
