Taralye helps to improve linguistic, educational and social outcomes for deaf children across Victoria by promoting early diagnosis and response to hearing loss.

Research indicates that diagnosis of hearing impairment can disrupt the bonding process between hearing parents and their young child with hearing loss. To help support the wellbeing of these mothers and in turn improve the long term outcomes for their children we are supporting Taralye's Mums are Amazing Pamper Nights.

The program will give more than 200 mums a chance to relax and build supportive relationships with one another. It will also teach them techniques to effectively support and advocate for their child, and minimise stress, providing them with access to long-term peer networks.
