“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.

  • Providing accessible stories and a role model for Deaf and hard of hearing kids  
  • Supporting early literacy and communication in Auslan and English
