Other parents are your greatest source of information about the shared experience of raising a child who is Deaf or Hard of Hearing (HoH).

We have a range of video stories from different perspectives – parents, professionals and Deaf or HoH children.

All our video stories are available to watch on our Deaf Children NZ youtube channel and they all have Closed Captions or a NZSL version.

Parent Hui 2015

In April 2015 DCNZ (then called New Zealand Federation for Deaf Children) with support from the Ministry of Education hosted a weekend hui for parents and whānau of Deaf and HoH children aged 0-5.

A series of videos was produced around topics that are relevant to all parents of a Deaf or HoH child – audiology, NZSL, developing language, audio verbal therapy, supporting positive behaviours, transition into school and more.

NZSL and Us

Three video stories told from the perspective of children who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing. Jorja, Zenos and Diamond share their stories about how using NZSL shapes their lives.
