Holistic approach

HI HOPES works in partnership with audiologists, speech therapists and other professionals to promote the very best outcome for the Deaf or hard of hearing child.

Since the launch of the programme in September 2006, HI HOPES has provided assistance to over 500 infants and children with hearing loss in Gauteng, Western Cape and KwaZulu-Natal. In 2011, the programme expanded to the Eastern Cape and our ultimate goal is to offer our services nation wide.

Because of the close connection they build with the families of these children, our Parent Advisors are able to assist with compliance in the wearing hearing aids and follow up assessments – especially in cases where the child lives far from mainstream health services.

For more information about our programme and how it could support your patients, please contact us on 011 717 3750 or email enroll your patient in our programme.
