Services for 6 - 11 years
Our services for 6 - 11 year olds include activities and events to provide sporting, cultural and social networking opportunities for deaf and hard of hearing children. The program allows children to explore new experiences and challenges, build lasting friendships with peers and stronger deaf community connections.
Through this service our workers can provide communication support to help deaf and hard of hearing NDIS participants participate in sporting, social and community events.
Parents and hearing siblings are encouraged to attend and join in with events and activities.
If you would like to receive these supports under the NDIS, you need to have funding for:
Access to Community
