Who We Are

Deaf Children Australia is a non-for-profit organisation that supports deaf and hard of hearing children, young people and their families to remove barriers to their personal development and social inclusion.

We work to promote opportunities for families and children to:

– Access unbiased information,
– Get connected with each other,
– Participate in peer to peer support,
– Access community, recreational and youth activities,
– Develop skills in advocacy, relationship building


We support all forms of communication and believe in equal opportunities for all.
