A local parent group is a fantastic way for parents to get in touch with others in their area who have first hand experience of the ups and downs of raising a deaf or hard of hearing child. Many parent groups start with a few parents meeting for coffee and a chat.
Sometimes this develops into activities or gatherings for the children to meet each other. However your local group works, many parents have found the ability to talk to others to be of huge importance.
There are currently Parent groups in each of the following regions, with one more group in Southland about to restart up. If you have any questions about the Parent Group in your area, or if you are interested in getting a group of local parents together to start one up, please don't hesitate to contact us.
