Here you will find a collection of excerpts from support letters that we receive from schools and organizations that we provide services to.
"The Earbus team always spend time with the families to explain what is happening to their children and give them simple things they can work on to help improve the ear health for their own children, which is always very valued.
The feedback of ongoing care that the Earbus program is providing is highly valued by these communities. Helping the children in the younger years is vital as it important for the general wellbeing and a positive future."

"One of the strengths of the program is that all children screened have access to prompt and regular treatment and we recently had an Ear Nose and Throat Specialist visit our community for the first time in known history to see some of our very needy children."

"At Boulder Primary School with 61% of our students identified as coming from families in the bottom 25% of the Australian Socio-Economic Index, it is important for us to utilise every support. The Earbus has been a very big factor in getting our message of ear health out to our community."
- Boulder Primary School
"I would like to highly commend the program which has assisted in helping to develop in students, many of whom are disadvantaged, healthy attitudes and practices relating to Ear Health along with providing the school with information of about individual student’s hearing issues. As the school is not presently staffed with an Ear health professional the expertise and knowledge that this program has brought to the school was greatly appreciated by the Leonora School community.

"Every one of our Indigenous and at-risk students has been referred to the service offered by the Earbus and across the school more than two hundred students have been assessed and sixty have been referred for ongoing assessment or treatment. The Earbus Foundation provides an invaluable service and it is vital to our school community that this service is maintained and financially supported for the ear health and future learning success of our students."
- South Kalgoorlie Primary School
"On Behalf of Menzies Community School I would like to express our strong support of the Earbus Program. It was with immense relief that I learnt that the Earbus team would be able to screen all of the students at our school as well as pre-school aged children. This is an important first step in identifying which of our students would require adjustments.
The high incidence of ear disease amongst our children has a significant impact on their success at school and ultimately later in life.

"As you are aware, we have some of the neediest children in the state at our school and the school endeavours to provide a good educational outcomes for these children. However the level of ear pathology in our school causes children to fall through the educational pathway as their ear health can impact on their ability to listen, hear and attend in the classroom. These children also often have difficulty engaging in medical treatment through traditional pathways.
The treatment and ongoing care that the Earbus program has provided is valuable to our school and community. This program assists the school in providing additional support to students that we otherwise wouldn’t have access to."
