BRIEF HISTORY OF NATIONAL WEEK OF DEAF PEOPLE

The International Week of Deaf People (IWDP) an International Day of Sign Languages (IDSL) are an initiative of the World Federation of the Deaf (WFD). These two events are traditionally held during September and are based on the founding dates of the WFD (23 September 1951). International Day of Sign Languages has been adopted by the United Nations General Assembly to celebrated annually on 23 September beginning in 2018. Until 2018, Deaf Australia has moved the National Week of Deaf People to coincide with the WFD’s IWDP and the IDSL. Previously, the NWDP was held on the 3rd week of October of each year.
