Parent mentoring programs

Explore this section

When a baby or child is diagnosed with a hearing loss, there are many people who provide the parents with support – professionals, family and friends. But these people rarely have the experience of raising a child with a hearing loss and the parents can often feel quite alone. There are people who understand – other parents. There is something special about the support and insights that another parent who has “walked the walk” can offer.

Parent-to-parent mentoring

More experienced parents are trained to support new parents who are starting out on their journey with their baby. There is no cost to the family.
