SIBILINGS Bertie and Elsie Shaw received a surprise visit from one of Australia’s top musicians at the Telethon Speech and Hearing (TSH) on September 10.

Jess Higgs, who goes by her stage name George Maple, was flown in for the Telethon Speech and Hearing parade on September 7.

Maple took time out of her busy schedule to visit the kids at TSH.

The siblings have been receiving services from TSH for more than three years and attend weekly Speech Pathology sessions to work on their speech sounds, understanding and use of language and listening skills.

They also attend a weekly group with similar aged peers.
