Auslan for Families

Auslan for Families classes are held at DCA and provide the opportunity for families to learn together alongside others like them.

Auslan for Families aims to empower deaf/hard of hearing children and their families by providing the opportunity to build Australian Sign Language (Auslan) skills together. Your deaf/hard of hearing children will be able to learn together with their siblings, other family members and yourselves in a safe, supportive environment where everyone can communicate equally. Classes are held over school terms and are onsite at DCA.

See more on our Auslan for Families page!

Auslan Auskick

Are communication barriers holding your son or daughter back from playing football?

If they are between 5 and 12 years of age and deaf or hard of hearing, they might want to try Auslan Auskick.

We are running an Auslan Auskick program with the generous support of the City of Darwin and AFL Northern Territory
