Ann Porter AM
Ann Porter is the founder of Aussie Deaf Kids and has taken on the position of Chief Executive Officer to achieve her vision of creating a leading website for families which is easy to use and provides families with the information they need to make both big and day-to-day decisions about raising their deaf child.

Ann is married with three daughters. Her youngest daughter was diagnosed with a profound unilateral hearing loss when she was 4 and lost the hearing in her other ear when she was 7.

Since the diagnosis of her daughter's hearing loss in 1996, Ann has been actively involved in supporting parents and advocating on behalf of their families. Ann has spoken at numerous conferences regarding online support and information for parents raising a deaf child.
