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).
She loves creating and illustrating Auslan games and activities,
especially for use in schools, and for families, with the goal of
making learning Auslan enjoyable and to increase English acquisition
for Deaf children.
"Leave no Deaf child behind" is her heart's goal, both in families
and in schools.
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
Southern Dialect Auslan:
The Auslan signs used in this website are from the Victorian state. Some
Auslan signs in Australia are different from state to state, however most
Deaf people have no problem understanding each other.
If you are from a state other than Victoria, please double check the signs
with someone who is knowledgeable about Auslan in your state.
We will be adding Northern Dialect Auslan to our resources in the
Updates on new additions in this website will be posted on Facebook: @auslanresources
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
Thank you so much for visiting, I hope you
enjoy teaching Auslan, the language of the Deaf
community in Australia :)
