What we do

Aussie Deaf Kids is a registered charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC).

Aussie Deaf Kids aims to empower parents raising a child with hearing loss through online support, information and advocacy.

We are committed to improving the outcomes of children who are deaf or hard of hearing by:

  • Providing parent-to-parent support through online parent support groups. The support needs to be empathic, informative and supportive of the choices families make.
  • Providing an independent information resource for families raising a child who is deaf or hard of hearing 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 child with hearing loss.
  • Advocating for the rights of children who are deaf and hard of hearing and their families to receive the services and support they need to achieve their potential.
  • Collaborating with parents, consumer organisations, service providers and academics to improve services and support for families.
