Darren Roberts (Director) has offered an introductory Auslan course to all members of APA (VIC). In his words,
This is my small way of saying "Thank you" for the amazing work they have done in the past year and l hope that by learning Auslan the Paramedics are in turn able to communicate with deaf and hard of hearing people in an emergency situation. By doing so Paramedics will be able to assist deaf people to understand what is happening which in turns calms the fear of any person in an emergency situation.
Members can read more about the offer in the Member's News post.
Learn Auslan Online also offers courses for more expansive use of Auslan which can be reviewed at www.learnauslan.com.au
