Hi my name is Zaidyn and I am six years old. I like to play with play dough and blocks and trainsets and my wolly washer. I like school and doing my homework. At school I like to play with a new game that we can actually do at home but you haven't got this yet, you get some cards up to one to ten and get lots of pegs and the number on the middle you put the same amount of pegs. I have blue hearing aids and they help me hear. Sometimes I don't like the rustling sound that they make and I also don't like putting vaseline on them but I like my hearing aids because they are being nice and comfortable. From Zaidyn.


Hi! My name is Brooke. I am 7 years old and I got my hearing aids when I was 1. I am in Year 2, and at school I use a FM and a Handymic. I have got an elder brother Luke who is 9, and a younger sister Tayla who is nearly 6. This is a story about me. In 2003 I got hit in the head by a cricket bat and I lost all my hearing for a week. Luckily, most of it came back. We found out I have LVAS (Large Vestibular Aquaduct Syndrome) so now I have to be careful I don't bang my head. Mum says she needs to wrap my head in bubble wrap! I love to play soccer at lunchtime and I love to play netball on weekends (Tayla will start playing next year). I am very good at swimming and I love to eat spaghetti bolognaise. I have a budgie called Sharkky that I got for my birthday, and 2 cats, one called Allie and one called Snow.
Regards, Brooke.XXXXXXX

We also have two budgies that are white and green that belong to my brother and sister. I like going for a ride on my bike. I go to the park on my bike, too.

Thank you. Alliesha.


Hi! My name is Hemi. I have a different type of hearing loss which is called "Auditory Neuropathy". I am 5 years old and last year I got a Cochlear Implant. My new ear has really helped me hear and my Mum says I'm not as noisy as I used to be.
I live in Fremantle with my Mum, Dad, big sister TeAmi and my new puppy 'Beck'. I go to two schools; my local school with my sister and  my school for the Deaf. I love bodyboarding at the Beach and I love playing with my Lego!
