Get Involved in our Online Sessions
We are providing monthly online drop in events for parents/guardians/grandparents through Google Meet to be a part of the DELTA Community to ask questions, discuss and share experiences of raising their deaf child at home and at school using the language of the home and community.
Each month will carry a theme and parents will be able to sign in from the comfort of their own home to be involved in sessions expected to last one hour to 90 minutes.

When a child is diagnosed as severely or profoundly deaf, the parents’ first question is often “Will s/he be able to talk?”
It is a very natural question; all parents normally expect to share their language with all their children. We believe that not only is it their right but that, for the vast majority of deaf children, it is a perfectly valid option.
If this interests you, we hope you will find the information below helpful
“We know that the vast majority of deaf children can learn to listen and talk. We believe that all parents of deaf children should be given this option.”
If you are a parent of a deaf child and need support, advice and guidance, please contact us below:
