This is a 2 or 4 hour session that covers Deaf and Communication Awareness with some industry-specific signs covered at the end of the session.
What People Are Saying
There are so many nuances that a hearing person takes for granted and knowing the best way to approach someone who is deaf, Deaf or hard of hearing can seriously help the interactions you have.
Absolutely brilliant. Best PD (as a teacher) that I have been to in YEARS.
Great, great class. Informative, interesting and engaging.
So informative and well put together. I want to know more!
Really fun, loved it and made me excited to learn more.
Michaela had such a good vibe and great energy!
Awareness of how I communicate and points I need to be more aware of when communicating!
There is so much more to sign language that I first thought.
So much to learn! It’s absolutely fascinating and exciting! It made me feel good that I could retain some basic signs and that I was learning.
Awareness of how best to get people’s attention was super helpful to me.
How important communication is in emergency situations and the importance of ensuring everyone can communicate effectively, even those that may not be able to hear. I hadn’t really considered that before.
It was a great introduction and I really enjoyed it. I’d love to learn more.
Worthwhile for everyone. It was actually AWESOME.
Very well presented in an easy to understand format.
It was a great night of information. Just the most fun way to learn Auslan.
I’m so pleased to learn you are creating another course that will follow the first one!
As a teacher, I really appreciate how well structured the lessons are, along with the slow, steady speed and repetition.
Thank you for the suggestions on how to keep working on my Auslan in the meantime, much appreciated.
Better understanding of Auslan and communication with people in the deaf community.
