    Deaf Children Australia has had the opportunity to significantly develop its library of resources to support families to learn Auslan as part of the pilot Vidkids program. Early childhood and pre-school aged resources that support learning together with bonding have only been available at very limited levels. We are aware that many parents regularly ask about how to sign their child’s favourite children’s picture books. To this end, DCA staff in the VidKids program have created online and digital resources that support families through experiential learning or storytelling. Great care has been taken to recruit appropriate on-screen talent who provide authentic language modelling. The videos were well received by VidKids families and we are keen to share them.

    Enjoy the videos on our Resources page, or see “I am Deaf” below. These videos are also available as a YouTube playlist here.
