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 capacity building services for parents and carers, respecting the method or methods of communication that the family has chosen for their child.
PODC can assist families with free decision making and planning support prior to attending your NDIS planning meetings.Contact us to find out how we can help you to make good decisions for your 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.
