Welcome to Loud Shirt Day supporting Taralye

We are getting loud to help children with hearing loss to listen, learn and speak to their full potential. Loud Shirt Day supports the work of Taralye – the oral language centre for deaf children, who provide early intervention services for children with hearing loss in Victoria.

Without early intervention, these children would struggle to achieve developmental milestones comparable with their hearing peers, and once at school, would continue to struggle behind in terms of academic and social achievement. Most children who graduate from early-intervention programs are able to attend mainstream school and achieve academic and employment rates equivalent to or better than those reported for the general Australian population.

Loud Shirt Day is a brilliant excuse to wear your brightest clothes and raise money so that we can continue to give the gift of sound and speech to children with hearing loss.

The official Loud Shirt Day for 2017 is the 20th of October, but you can choose to host your event whenever it suits you or your workplace or school. Click “Register” to start or contact Taralye for more information by email fundraising@taralye.org.au or phone 03 9877 1300.

Let’s ‘get loud’ in support of deaf children together!

Any excuse for a loud get together is a good excuse. Have it over morning tea, lunch or a staff meeting – just don’t forget the fashion parade!

If you’re the social and energetic type, why not organise an event at work, school or with friends?  You can even create a theme – most outrageous shirt, best 80’s fashion, most hideous sweater – and ask people to make a donation.

Whether you fancy stripes, florals, polka dots or paisley, as long as it’s got colour and pizazz it’ll be perfect for Loud Shirt Day.

Loud Shirt Day is the perfect way to GET LOUD FOR DEAF KIDS like Lachlan.   


To enhance life opportunities for children who are deaf by working closely with their families to deliver evidence-based programs, by participating in research, and by advocating on their behalf.
