Hunter Deafblind Resources

Intro to Auslan lessons

Over COVID-19, Steve Ripley ran Intro to Auslan lessons in the CDAH Zoom office.

For 20 weeks, Steve Ripley hosted Introduction to Auslan sessions for anyone that was interested in learning some of this fabulous language and developing their skills in connecting with people who are Deafblind in the Hunter.

Steve Ripley is a Deafblind man with the lived experience of using Auslan and delivering communication training for over 30 years. Learn some of the basic Auslan greetings and everyday signs. Each lesson has been recorded for people who missed the lesson or if you want to revise.
