Women using AUSLAN infront of a laptop
Anytime Auslan and Deafblind Australia have joined together to bring you part two of the professional development, working with and empowering people who are Deafblind as either an Auslan Interpreter, Deaf Interpreter or commguide/support worker.
Please Note: This workshop is only available to those who have attended our Deafblind theory professional developments. (see bottom of page for more info)
Presenter: Paola Avila (Deafblind Australia)
Details: Following on from our last two theory based professional development (December 2022 and May 2023), Paola will be working with us in a “hands-on” experience. This workshop aims to bring together the theory previously learned and give each individual a taste of what it’s like to be a person with Deafblindness.
In this theory component we have invited a total of 4 Deafblind participants to help us with the practical activities. By the end of the practical session, our presenters and our participants hope you feel more confident working with Deafblind people in an empowering way.
We will have activities and light refreshments.
