CE update – 27 May 2022


Hello, I’m Jen Blyth, CEO of Deaf Australia. I have a brief update for you all.

So far I have been attending many meetings. Most of them are related to NDIS and AAT case conferences to support families’ advocacy to reinstate Auslan tuition on their children’s plans after being cut.

Secondly, we want to inform you that we will have the Colin Allen Lecture coming up soon. Please see Debra’s video for more information.

Thirdly, yesterday was Sorry Day. It is important that we acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait people in Australia. Related to that, on 3rd to 10th July will be NAIDOC week and Auslan shop will offer 5% to everything we sell in that week to Deaf Aboriginal organisation/Services. More information will be shared soon.

Lastly, we have SBS video podcast with 4 episodes being available for view. They all have different topics with the first one about Auslan as a language, Deaf stories around technologies, Deaf Gain and Deafblind. The upcoming episode will be about diversity and we will see what the last episode’s topic will be –  it will be a surprise. I strongly encourage you all to watch those episodes to enjoy the content and to laugh along.


I wonder if we should organise a movie night where everyone can watch together and have a discussion afterwards relating to the topic? Let me know!

That’s all from me. Have a lovely week. Thanks, bye.
