There are a large number of technological advances that have made every day life easier for Deaf or Hard of Hearing children, such as loud ringing or flashing alarm clocks, mobile phones that vibrate, or flashing smoke detectors. If you require financial assistance to purchase an assistive device, NZFDC may be able to contribute to this.
