    • Hi, I look after my granddaughter two days a week. My granddaughter is two and a half, not speaking or walking. Has had a lot of other issues as well. Hearing was below 30% but recently had tonsils and adenoids removed and grommets put in. Hearing is now about 50% but doctors will test again in six months. About a year ago I go I got the baby sign app with auslan for my phone and she enjoys being able to communicate, but with her parents teaching her new signs that I haven’t learnt yet, it’
    • I have two school aged kids and think it should be the elective language to learn, I mean I know learning Indonesian is important, but I think it would be better if kids could sign to other deaf hearing impaired kids and make them feel included.  It might also help hearing kids understand better about what other kids go through

    • Hi, I'm writing a story for school about someone who's deaf and I want to know what are the verbs for talking to someone through sign language? My peers think that saying 'signing' sounds more like singing with a pen. 
    • Hi Everyone I'm Louanne and I'm super new to AUSLAN.  I became deaf in my right ear last year from a sepsis infection after heart surgery.  I have always wanted to learn sign language, and this was just the push I needed.
