Children of Deaf Adults, INC. 

CODA celebrates the unique heritage and
identities of adult hearing
individuals with deaf parent(s).


The last Sunday in April is designated Mother Father Deaf Day. This is a day that codas around the world acknowledge and celebrate our deaf parents. 

25 April 2021 will mark the 25th anniversary of Mother Father Deaf Day. Our theme is “Celebrating our Heritage and Families”.  All codas from around the world are welcome to join in this celebration.  For more information about our plans, please check here periodically. Also, please follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to keep informed about this global event #mfdd25dpd.


Greetings to codas all over the globe! The 25th Anniversary Committee for observance of our Mother Father Deaf Day/Deaf Parents Day has been working hard to help make #mfdd25dpd (25 April 2021) a day for celebrating our heritage and our families. One of our projects has been to create an Event Guide, which includes many suggestions to consider when preparing for 25 April 2021. Our committee is very grateful to KODAheart ( for their collaboration on this Event Guide. Click here for more information.

We are in the process of reaching out to local CODA related organisations around the world to help with the 25th anniversary celebration.  

This outreach, for now, is a request for a short video that includes the native words/signs for the country of origin, the native words/signs for “Mother, Father Deaf/Deaf Parents Day”, and the native phrase/sign for “Coda”. We will share these videos on CODA’s social media platforms. Please click here for more information.
