All children have the right to be healthy, stay safe, enjoy childhood and fulfil their potential.
Deaf Children Australia’s (DCA’s) Safe programme supports the personal safety skills training of children through a ground breaking web based resource. The Safe programme utilises animations, role-play video clips and feeling cards together with Australian Sign Language (Auslan) and spoken language captioning so it’s accessible to all children, including those who are deaf or hard of hearing and those with additional needs.
This innovative programme teaches children how to protect themselves, helps them understand what is appropriate behaviour and empowers them to trust their feelings. It is the first personal safety resource tailored to the specific communication needs of deaf children in Australia, and has been adapted from the UK’s Safe Programme developed by the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.
