Deafness Awareness Training
Deaf Awareness Training allows individuals to gain an understanding of the deaf and hard of hearing world. DCA's program aims to educate and create empowerment and understanding of the deaf and hard of hearing community.
Deafness awareness training is available for schools and community activities such as sports clubs, assisting them to provide a supportive and inclusive environment for deaf and hard of hearing children and young people.
To increase the knowledge on the communication needs of deaf and hard of hearing children and young people DCA provides a range of DAT sessions to improve understanding and awareness of:
– Auslan (Australian sign language)
– Deaf Culture
– Communication tactics to use when talking with deaf and hard of hearing young people and children.
– Making the environment accessible
– Improve your communication skills!
