What's on

We provide whole Family and Special Group events throughout the year. These events bring families and whānau together so they can enjoy quality time together, share peer support and information. Events are held across Auckland, so that families can find something local to them. 


Event admission is free, or heavily subsidised for Full APODC members (mum, dad, caregivers, the deaf child, and their siblings), whilst Associate Members (those interested in the needs of deaf children), can enjoy discounted rates.

Free Introductory event for all
