Online Learning and Outreach

All programs and services offered by The Shepherd Centre can be accessed through Teleintervention, our Connect Online Learning portal and via outreach visits. 

Teleintervention Program

The Shepherd Centre’s Teleintervention Program provides specialist services to any families who prefer online services via video-conferencing sessions and online learning programs.

The Teleintervention Program is available to all families, and especially those living in rural, regional and remote regions of Australia, or who live overseas.

The program provides expert advice in paediatric hearing loss to guide and coach parents in their local environment supporting children’s listening, literacy, language and social development using every day equipment and daily life routines.

The team work with local educational support workers and allied health professionals to help achieve the best possible outcomes for children. 

Families can access services using technology best suited to their needs, including laptops, iPads and tablets.

Families have access to all services including audiology, speech therapy, child and family counselling, speech and language assessments, group programs and face-to-face discussions about managing and living with hearing loss.

Connect Online Learning

Programs on Connect are tailored specifically for families living a long distance from our centres, or unable to visit a local centre  in typical working hours, to provide a learning experience customised to suit you and your family.

Connect offers a new pathway into our programs, allowing you to access the fundamentals of our world-renowned programs and services for children with hearing loss, in your own home, on a day and at a time that best suits your family.

Connect aims to support upskill parents to encourage their child’s listening and language development at home, and in their everyday environments.

It also links parents with other families who may have similar experiences, or may be a step ahead on their early intervention journey, where parents can meet, discuss new ideas, offer suggestions and support other parents.
