Look Hear Australia (LHA) is a library of online resources for allied health and education professionals. It was developed by a group of allied health and education professionals in rural and remote Australia.

Thousands of clinicians are creating millions of resources every year for children with complex and additional needs.

However, it can be a daunting and confusing exercise finding the right resource for the right child, and even knowing where to start and what to search for.

Look Hear Australia makes that search simple by bringing top resources and resource pages together under one site.

LHA’s motto is “it’s not hard to make it easy”, and we strive to make the search for quality information, programs, equipment and resources easy.

Some of our resource topics include:

LHA has a blog where many different parents and professionals post.

LHA has a “Community Recommended Page” where children, parents/carers and other professionals can suggest their recommendations for the website.

LHA is free for anyone to use and there is a shop to purchase our resources.
