To date the Audiology team has conducted 26 visits, screened 1305 children, referred 284 cases to ENT and fitted 136 children with hearing aides.

Early identification of ear and hearing problems is important to minimize their effects on education and speech and language development. It allows us to treat temporary hearing problems and commence rehabilitation for those with permanent hearing loss.
The objective of the Frank Hilton Audiology outreach programme is to identify children with hearing problems, outer and middle ear pathologies and provide the early detection and intervention and therapy. Children in remote, inaccessible areas are not able to access services provided by the Organization so there is hardly any intervention at the correct time, the outreach program helps us intervene and detect at the right age and assist children who would otherwise not be able to access these services. the Audiology Outreach also has the benefit of visiting consultant Audiologist Donna Carkeet.



The FHO Physiotherapy team in 2018 has screened 411 children in 4 schools and has referred 23 children to nearest Health centers, hospitals and nearest Physiotherapists for further treatment and assessment

Physiotherapy Outreach program is important as it provides early Intervention to children with physical impairment and mobility. The objective of the outreach is to ensure children are assessed and screened from ECE level to classes 1-3 and build awareness and capacity for a more holistic approach among parents, teachers, carers, communities and stakeholders

Outreach allows for a more holistic approach a child and their family.
