Peterborough and District Deaf Children’s Society is a charity comprised of parents dedicated to providing support, information and advice for parents and families of deaf or hard of hearing children and young people in and around the Peterborough area. We do what we can to offer a wide range of social support keeping deaf children out of isolation and build there confidence. Deaf Toddler Group with the attendance of Audiology to do regular ear mould impressions in a relaxed atmosphere, Deaf Swimming with a BSL instructor, Family Sign Courses, Playscheme, Youth Group, as well as regular half term activities, Christmas Party and much much more. We understand that once you have received your child's diagnosis it can be daunting, filled with questions about the future and what support is out there. We are here to share our experiences, achievements and failures in order to help and support each other and in turn help and support our deaf children.
"After our daughter was diagnosed with hearing loss from newborn screening tests, PDDCS have been our life line. We had no idea what help was out there or where to turn or what was in-store for our daughter growing up, but PDDCS supported us as a family and continue to support us. Even if it's just a chat or vent about our latest hearing aid drama or difficulties in school, they are always there to help in anyway they can. "
