Parents of Deaf Children
Parents of Deaf Children (PODC), formerly Parent Council for Deaf Education, is a non-profit organisation, supporting families with babies, children and teenagers with hearing loss in NSW. The organisation offers a range of information, support and advocacy services for parents and carers, respecting the method or methods of communication that the family has chosen for their child.
PODC connects families to others in their local area via POD groups (parent groups). Our quarterly magazine, Sound News, provides information about parenting and educating a child with hearing loss. PODC advocates on behalf of families with government departments and service providers.
Thank you to our supporters
PODC gratefully acknowledges the support of the NSW Department of Ageing, Disabilities & Home Care.
