Join Auslan Storytime this term starting in early February
“I believe a Deaf role model is important to influence children – that sign language is important to have bilingual language”
Mark Hooper, Auslan Storytime Presenter
Interactive storytelling sessions led by a Deaf presenter in their primary language, serving as a positive role model for young Deaf and hard of hearing children and fostering early literacy development.
The Auslan Storytime program is:
- Led by a Deaf presenter in their first language (Auslan)
- Providing accessible stories and a role model for Deaf and hard of hearing kids
- Supporting early literacy and communication in Auslan and English
- Nurturing social skills in a fun, family-friendly environment
- Free and open for parents to attend
