Kids aims to empower parents raising a child with hearing loss through online support, information and advocacy.
Kids is committed to improving the outcomes for deaf children by:
- Providing online parent-to-parent support on a variety of
platforms. The support needs to be empathic, informative and supportive of the choices
- Providing an independent information resource for families
raising a deaf child in Australia through our website www.aussiedeafkids.org.au. The guiding principle is an intuitive website that provides comprehensive yet parent-friendly information from birth to the post-school period. The information should be relevant, meaningful and evidence-based to assist parents to make informed choices about raising their deaf child.
- Advocating for the rights of deaf and hard of hearing children
and their families to receive the services and support they need to achieve
- Collaborating with parents, consumer organisations, service providers and academics to improve services and support for families.
