Life Skill Development - Everyday Skills Training | Deaf Connect


We offer both one-on-one skill development support and structured Life Skill Development Programs in small group settings.  

We provide participants with access to one-on-one support in Auslan, allowing participants to learn and develop the skills and confidence to live independent lives. By supporting participants using their primary language, we aim to reduce the requirement for Auslan interpreters in situations where they may not be needed and reduce the strain on our participant’s interpreting packages.

  • Home and personal safety  
  • Basic cooking  
  • Budgeting
