Learn how to communicate without a voice

THE Latrobe Valley community has the opportunity to learn how to communicate with the deaf community at a free program beginning tomorrow in Morwell.

The three different sessions on offer will be presented without voice.

In one session participants will learn how to retell popular children’s fairy tales, and in another, how to communicate visually through movement, facial expression and body language.

In all sessions, participants will engage with an Auslan Interpreter, at certain points, to conduct ice breaking activities and ask questions.

A third session will provide participants with an opportunity to practice skills learnt through a range of scenarios where deaf people will normally frequent and want to communicate within your local community such as a café, supermarket, bank, informal greeting, and local community landmarks.

This program is a ‘taste’ of the Certificate II in Auslan being offered to Victoria’s regional communities by Melbourne Polytechnic and DeafConnectEd.

The program will be held at Federation Training, Morwell.
