Our Parent to Parent program helps connect parents who have received a recent diagnosis for their child or are a ways along in their journey.
After learning your child is deaf or hard of hearing, you may have many questions. Deaf Children Australia (DCA) can help through our free services - Parent to Parent Program, Life Stories Program, National Helpline and Information Services. It can be reassuring to speak with another parent who has traveled a similar path, and can provide unbiased information and support during this time.
Our Parent to Parent Program is available statewide across Queensland and Victoria. Trained Support Parents are available to meet with families through one on one home visits or phone contact, in your community or at Early Intervention Centre playgroups or at parent group events such as POD Groups. Support Parents can provide group or one on one support.
