Conductive Hearing Loss

Conductive Hearing Loss (CHL) and Otitis Media (OM) are prevalent in young children, particularly Aboriginal children, and have a significant impact on children's language and their social and physical development.

The Care for Kids' Ears campaign has been designed and produced by the Australian Government to increase awareness of ear disease and hearing loss in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.  It is the first national campaign to target Indigenous ear disease.  There are many free resources for teachers and early childhood and community groups to use as well as a teacher's kit.

For easy to understand information on CHL see ©R.I.C Publications, Class Ideas K-3, Issue 48.
