Deaf Services Queensland offers a range of Community Auslan classes aimed at introducing basic Auslan conversational skills to participants. The community courses are informal and relaxed, follow the school terms, and run for two hours per week for a total of 8 weeks. Alternatively, in some levels/locations you can enrol in a weekend course which still covers the 16 hours but is held over 2 full days.

There are currently three community courses available:

  • Community Auslan Introduction - designed for those with no previous experience with Auslan (General $185/Concession $165)
  • Community Auslan I - Community Auslan Introduction is a prerequisite for this class (General $185/Concession $165)
  • Baby Sign - a stand-alone class aimed at helping parents better communicate with their baby or toddler (Single $90/Couple $75 p.p) 
To find out which course is right for you see our Training Pathways page or view available classes below.
 
All students enrolled in courses with Deaf Services Queensland agree to adhere to our Terms and Conditions.

More info

Baby Sign is designed for parents to learn basic Auslan key word signs for babies and children who are hearing or Deaf between two months and five years of age. Infants naturally use smiling, cooing, crying and movement to communicate their needs and feelings so it is common for babies to use their hands to communicate long before they can speak. Attending the eight week Baby Sign classes gives parents the skills to connect in a meaningful way with their baby or toddler.
