About the Centre/Service Aurora School Early Intervention program is a statewide Department of Education & Training service for families and children (aged 0 to 6) who are deaf or hard of hearing. Aurora provides regular home based support from collaborative teams which include speech pathologists, Teachers of the Deaf, educational psychologists, social workers, and deaf educators. Aurora Early Intervention programs provide tailored inclusion support in state-wide kindergartens and child care facilities. A bilingual philosophy underpins our program and we believe the provision of both spoken and signed languages are integral to the comprehensive development of young deaf children’s wellbeing and early communication and language skills. The development of listening skills is an important feature of our program .
