“While all my friends have been supportive, it is really only people who have been in your shoes that can know what you are going through.” – Mother of 3 month old deaf daughter
Without doubt, parenting is a difficult yet rewarding challenge. Families with deaf children often feel isolated with relatively few contacts with whom to compare and share their experiences.
The three-month program will:
• Match you with an appropriate mentor taking into account your location, cultural preference
• Provide support through an appropriate channel – face-to-face, phone, SMS, email
• Encourage mentors to provide support weekly for the first month and then regular contact for the next two months.
