Consultation with Stakeholders

You may be aware that Deaf Children Australia recently appointed Ernst and Young to undertake a review of our present and future office and program support requirements.  The review, which is due to be tabled to the Board in late March, will involve extensive consultation with all key stakeholders including the Board itself, staff, other organisations including the Victorian College for the Deaf, members of DCA and the deaf community.

Expressions of Interest - Expert Reference Group

Deaf Children Australia is pleased to invite Expressions of Interest from suitably experienced members of the community to join an Expert Reference Group. This group is being convened to assist us with the design development and implementation of a proposed IT training program to be delivered in Auslan.

Monash University Xbox Kinect Auslan Project

Deaf Children Australia is partnering with Monash University and Vicdeaf on a project to investigate the capacity for the Xbox Kinect to become a tool for learning Auslan.  A previous article outlined the beginnings of this project.  Since then, the team has met several times to work through the enormous challenge of writing the programming code to enable the Kinect to recognise the intricacies of Auslan.

Early language development of deaf children

Deaf Children Australia is an industry partner on an exciting study into the early language development of children with cochlear implants, and the factors which influence the outcomes.

This study, led by La Trobe University, will track the progress of infants with a diagnosis of severe to profound hearing loss, gathering data on how their communication environment and other factors influence their language development.
