Parents & Parent Groups

DCNZ supports the nine Regional Parents Groups spread out from Northland to Southland, Regional Parent Groups are the best place to find local information and support.

We have lots of information for parents and caregivers about their journey in parenting a child who is Deaf or Hard of Hearing.

To become a Member of DCNZ is free and your child will be sent a Member Information Kit, which includes useful information for you and books, DVDs or accessories suitable for your child.

We also forward your details to your Regional Parent Group, if there is one in your area. Parent Groups are the best source of local information and peer support.
