Mild Matters

Research project

Mild Matters is a research project which aims to find out if hearing aids can help babies and young children with bilateral mild hearing loss. 

Babies can be born with different degrees of hearing loss. Hearing aids can help babies with moderate or greater degrees of hearing loss, but we do not know whether they help babies with mild hearing loss. This study helps us answer this important question.

Throughout 2018 and 2019, we are inviting babies and children to take part in this project who:

  • have mild permanent hearing loss in both ears
  • are less than 2 years old
  • are from NSW, QLD or VIC
  • have been diagnosed within the last three months

If you are interested in taking part in this study or have any questions about the research, please contact the Mild Matters research team on 03 9345-6180 or
