Currently 1 in 6 Australians live with a hearing loss. In the coming decades, it is predicted that this number will increase to one-quarter of the Australian population.
In Australia, we experience our share of natural – and other – disasters. Ensuring our emergency personnel can communicate effectively and with sensitivity to all members of their community is of paramount importance.
Deaf Awareness Training is not only helpful when dealing with Deaf and hard of hearing members of the community, but also with elderly people, people of Culturally and Linguistically Diverse backgrounds and people with disabilities.
Deaf Awareness Training has been provided for customer-facing council staff, and tailored training developed and delivered to staff and volunteers in our local emergency services.
An online beginners Auslan course is available for those who want to continue learning and improving their Auslan. Contact us for details
