Auslan for Families Program

The biggest barrier to the cognitive, social and emotional development and wellbeing of a deaf child, is not access to sound, but access to full natural language. And the best way to prevent language deprivation in a deaf child is for those around them to develop the skills to interact with them in natural sign language – ie Auslan. We can help!

Things We Can Help With


Why use MyAuslan?

We are proudly Deaf-owned and Deaf-led, and wherever possible support the Deaf business eco-system.

We are passionate about preserving, nurturing and propagating authentic Auslan – the natural language and cultural heart of Australia’s Deaf community.


MyAuslan acknowledges the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the first inhabitants of the nation and the traditional custodians of the lands where we live, learn and work.

MyAuslan also acknowledges the members – past and present – of the Deaf community in Australia who preserve our rich heritage, culture and our language – Auslan. Through Auslan, we promote awareness, equity and access for Auslan users, and inspire future leaders in our Deaf community to continue our legacy and heritage.

  • A proud Deaf bilingual native Auslan user (quite a mouthful, eh?), a mother to 4 non-deaf human kids and a large collection of furry & feathery kids.
  • A bibliophile and a writer.
  • Taught Auslan for over 30 years to people from 0 to 99 (yes, I like Lego).
  • Degrees in Linguistics, Education, and Family History (I know – I am a geek!).
  • A hunter and collector of both dead and living deaf people in Australia.
  • Fun fact – I have over 15 deaf relatives in my family, spanning 4 generations.
