Benefits Of Learning Auslan

Incorporating Auslan into the curriculum has many benefits for both deaf and hearing children.

Sign language can:

  • enhance children’s educational and personal development
  • increase memory retention and motion processing
  • stimulate brain development and mental flexibility 
  • increase enjoyment in communicating for both hearing and deaf children

Sign language uses vocabulary, space, movement, facial expressions and body language, and conveys a message through a combination of signs, fingerspelling, physical posture or facial expression.
