Queensland Hearing Loss Family Support Service

The Queensland Hearing Loss Family Support Service (QHLFSS) provides support and services to Queensland families with children or young people who have a permanent hearing loss. The service aims to minimise the time between a child or young person’s diagnosis of hearing loss and families receiving support and services, and to help set and achieve goals for their child or young person.

Who can access this service?

The Queensland Hearing Loss Family Support Service provides care and support for the families of children and young people aged birth to 6 years living in Queensland who receive a direct refer result on a newborn hearing screening or are diagnosed with a permanent hearing loss.
