Meeting other parents
"Talking to other parents was really useful, knowing that they had gone through the same situations was encouraging, I didn't feel so out of my depth. In fact, I have made some really good friends."
Sarah, mother of Seana (7).
We believe that parents really are the experts when it comes to raising a deaf child because you’ve lived through all the highs and lows. Knowing that you’re not alone and meeting other people who have experienced the same challenges can be very empowering.
The most valuable things parents of deaf children have found about meeting other parents of deaf children are:
- meeting other parents in the same situation
- learning from each other
- supporting each other
- sharing experiences
- feeling part of a community.
