Abstract

This review article summarizes the available literature regarding educational and other approaches to hearing loss among Indigenous preschool and school children of Australia (i.e. both Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people). Particular attention is given to the: impact of hearing loss; factors contributing to hearing loss; prevention and management of otitis media and hearing loss; education strategies addressing hearing loss; and policies and policy implications for reducing hearing loss and its educational consequences.
