Auslan Resources is run by Susan McConnell, a fourth generation Deaf and native Auslan user.

Susan worked as a Teacher of the Deaf for almost 10 years, and also taught LOTE Auslan in primary schools, as well as VCE Auslan in high schools (Years 11 and 12).

For Teachers
Schools now require Auslan teachers to be able teach Auslan effectively to students as a second language, using the Australian Curriculum. Many teachers (as was my experience first hand) find it time consuming to create quality Auslan teaching materials, or even try to find quality Auslan resources anywhere. For this reason, I have invested many hours into creating quality Auslan resources especially for teachers, to save them time, so that they can teach effectively to their students. If you are a teacher visiting this website, I hope you will find the resources useful.

South Dialect Auslan and North Dialect Auslan
This website now includes both South and North Dialect Auslan, please choose the correct Dialect for your school.
South Dialect - Vic, SA, WA, Tas, NT
North Dialect - QLD, NSW

Some Auslan signs in Australia are different from state to state, however most Deaf people have no problem understanding each other.
When teaching Auslan, please double check the signs with someone who is knowledgeable about Auslan in your state, as there may be some sign variations due to local area, age, social influences, etc.
