Exeter and South Devon Deaf Children's Society (ESDDCS)
Exeter and South Devon Deaf Children's Society (ESDDCS) have been supporting deaf children and their families in the Exeter and South Devon area for over 40 years.
Hearing loss and it's implications vary hugely, so we support families with all levels of deafness. Ranging from a mild hearing loss, with or without hearing aids, to profoundly deaf with a cochlear implant, or someone who relies heavily on signing or lip reading.
Our main aims are to support our deaf children, to develop effective interaction, communication and to offer every support we can to enable them to develop their full potential.
We cover Exeter to Torbay to Plymouth with all the areas in between. Membership is open to any local families with any type or level of hearing loss within the family. Membership is also open to the grandparents and other family members, or people who work with deaf children.
