Telethon Speech & Hearing

Chevron Australia congratulates Telethon Speech & Hearing (TSH) on celebrating 50 years of helping kids hear and speak.

Chevron has been proudly partnering with TSH since 2011 to deliver the Chevron Ear Health Program and help create potentially life-changing outcomes for children with middle-ear infection in the Pilbara region. The Chevron Ear Health Program is the only program in Western Australia that provides mobile screening, diagnosis and clinical care pathways to address the significant ear health concerns of Aboriginal children.

Since partnering with Telethon Speech & Hearing in 2011, the Chevron Ear Health program has screened more than 8,772 children for middle ear disease through mobile ear clinics in the West Pilbara.

Chevron and TSH’s partnership focuses on facilitating best practice in ear health care providing education, audiology and clinical services and includes:

  • The mobile advanced paediatric audiology remote vehicle providing mobile ear clinic services with specialised equipment for infant diagnostic testing, as well as paediatric hearing tests for children aged 0 to 4 years
  • Health resources kits and education sessions – targeted at ear health and prevention for families, educators and health providers
  • Contribution to the Pilbara Ear Health Model of Care handbook which provides best ear health practices in order to protect children's ears
  • An online “Ear Health Portal” to leave a lasting legacy by significantly improving the coordination of services and access to information to ensure all children receive the highest quality of care
