Deafness awareness training is available for schools and community activities such as sports clubs, assisting them to provide a supportive and inclusive environment for deaf and hard of hearing children and young people.
To increase the knowledge on the communication needs of deaf and hard of
hearing children and young people DCA provides a range of DAT sessions to
improve understanding and awareness of:
– AUSLAN (Australian sign language)
– Deaf Culture
– Communication tactics to use when talking with deaf and hard of hearing young people and children.
– Making the environment accessible
– Improve your communication skills!
DAT in the community
DCA can provide DAT in the community at local community groups and sport clubs. DAT can be funded under a NDIS plan.
DAT at work
For young deaf and hard of hearing people, our employment service Sign for Work can provide DAT in the work place. If you employ a deaf person you may be eligible to access government funding to either partially or fully cover the cost of Deaf Awareness Training through the Employment Assistance Fund.
