About Us

Auckland Parents Of Deaf Children Inc (APODC) was formed over 50 years ago. Families with a deaf or hearing impaired child who are living anywhere in Auckland are eligible to join APODC.

APODC is run by a team of volunteer parents (the committee) plus a part-time Development Coordinator. Annual elections are held for the committee.

We would welcome enquiries from anyone interested in being on the committee.

APODC is a member group of the Deaf Children New Zealand, Tamariki Turi o Aotearoa. They are an active body which has been working nationwide with the Government and deafness agencies since 1976, to continually improve the care and education options available to New Zealand’s deaf and hearing impaired children.
