This is an awesome video by the Queensland Police Service (QPS). They have partnered with Deaf Services Queensland to "enhance communication between police officers and the Deaf community."

Being able to communicate clearly and effectively is a crucial role for police. It is important that they to have a basic understanding of Auslan to help the deaf and hard of hearing community feel safe and comfortable.

The video is part of a larger project for Deaf Services. It started with the Queensland Ambulance Service and eventually aims to include all Queensland emergency services.

The Auslan Company is also doing doing similar projects. We are currently teaching Auslan to Warragul Fire Brigade and we will be providing ongoing Auslan support and training to Ausmed (Australian Paramedics Association)

We would like to give a massive thank you to all of our Auslan tutors and the families they teach for embracing Zoom / Skype etc to continue to learn Auslan. To date we have 19 teachers teaching 60+ families approximately 90 hours of Auslan EACH WEEK in VIC, NSW, QLD, SA, and WA plus families in Alice Springs and NT.

With Christmas time rapidly approaching it can be a particularly difficult and isolating time for deaf people. With more than 90% of deaf children born to hearing parents, research suggests that having that child grow up in a signing home environment can lead to reduced self identity issues, reduced mental health issues, less suicide numbers, and less isolation from the family.

Our teachers are making a huge difference to each child and to each family. Thank you again for the wonderful work you do.

Thank you Darren! πŸ‘

Thank you (and Sue) so much for providing support not only through Auslan but a sense of relief when it comes to teaching my daughter and I Auslan throughout a pandemic.

Congratulations Darren on being so successful and giving not only the Deaf and HoH community but those of us that can hear the opportunity to learn a valuable life lesson that being the beautiful language of Auslan.

Our friend Khatija sent us this video of her daughters signing. Karima and Zahra chose to learn Auslan as a skill they'd like to acquire during lockdown. For those who say they don’t know what to do with their time during isolation, learning a new language is a great start. Awesome effort, girls!

If our young people see the values of inclusive communities from now, we have a bright future ahead. 😊

It's National Week of Deaf People! NWDP is a week long national celebration of Deaf individuals and the Deaf Australian community.

It is an opportunity for d/Deaf people to:
- Celebrate their community, language, culture and history
- Make the public aware of their local, state and national Deaf communities
- Recognise the Deaf community's achievements

Whether you're deaf, learning Auslan, have a deaf child or family member, we would love for our followers to send us a video of them signing (either in the comments or via private message).

It can be a funny story about being deaf, your reason for learning Auslan, what you've learnt from the deaf community, or even a challenge you've faced. Even just a message saying hello. Whatever you like!

Its no secret that there are some wonderful and talented deaf people out there. Tabitha Page - Author is a partially deaf New Zealander now living in Melbourne, Australia.
Tabitha is the writer of several childrens books starring Mikah Monkey. Mikah is a young, cheeky monkey who is deaf. He lives in a zoo with his Mum, Dad and older sister and uses sign language to communicate with his family and their keeper, Annie.
Tabitha wanted Mikah’s adventures to have mention of his deafness and that he uses sign, but also feature other things as well, not just focus on that one part of his life. 
I wanted it to be a part of his story, but not the entire thing. I hope that I have done it justice.  
I really hope that while reading Mikah’s adventures, children will feel a little less alone, a lot more empowered and will realise that they are just as fabulous as everybody else.
Tabitha is running special prices for a limited time on her series of Mikah books. You can check them out and place an order on her website - http://www.tabithajeanpage.com/Image attachmentImage attachment
