If you have any concerns regarding the issues surrounding Victorian College for the Deaf which were raised in the recent Age article or ABC News coverage, please contact the Department of Education and Training Victoria.
Deaf Children Australia will continue advocating at a systemic level with all those who provide services to deaf and hard of hearing children, young people and their families. This includes working with Education and Training, and Health Departments, Teachers of the Deaf, Visiting Teachers and educational facilities. We will also continue to advocate for and empower children and young people to strive for their goals and reach their potential.
Deaf Children Australia is engaging with the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) as the disability sector changes. We are pleased that our capacity has been expanded with a recent NDIS National Readiness Grant for Information, Linkages and Capacity Building so we can build on our Information Services, Advocacy and Community Development work.
