Family stories

Explore this section

Many families with a deaf child find comfort in reading about the experiences of other families in similar situations. It helps them to realise that they are not alone on their journey and that other parents have gone through similar experiences.

Stories provide valuable information, motivation, reassurance, and confidence in their ability to raise their child with hearing loss. Reading stories about other families with deaf children is a great way to learn from their experiences, feel motivated, and gain confidence in your own parenting abilities.

Sharing your personal story will help other families walking in your footsteps. If you would like to share your story, please email us and we can guide you through the process.
