AbstractAboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children suffer from a high prevalence of conductive hearing loss associated with otitis media. In many areas hearing health services have been developed to provide assessment and treatment for indigenous children. Provision of appropriate amplification to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children with hearing loss is an integral part of such services. The present study was designed to provide demographic and qualitative information regarding the Australian Hearing Services amplification programme as it related to rural Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in Queensland. The programme data were examined for children issued with hearing aids who were living in 24 rural indigenous communities during a 5 year period. Population characteristics of the 372 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children fitted with hearing aids in this period are discussed, including degree, type and aetiology of hearing loss. The type and configuration of hearing aid fittings used in this paediatric population are specified. Implications of the findings for future programme development are outlined.
