towards better deaf education

National summit on early intervention and education for Deaf and hard of hearing children

Education is a major issue for the Deaf community in Australia. This summit is for everyone with an interest in early intervention and education for Deaf and hard of hearing children. Gather, share and use information on the lived experience of early intervention and education to help improve the system and create real, meaningful change.
The community is concerned and frustrated that the system is not meeting their needs: Deaf and hard of hearing people and their families want and need change. You will hear from key people and organisations: • Deaf people • hard of hearing people • families • educators Workshops and discussions will cover: information about identified issues; what works; what doesn’t work; what needs to change; and strategies for effecting those changes. Senator Jan McLucas, Parliamentary Secretary for Disability and Carers will address the Summit on 29 November, and we will host an afternoon tea with selected MPs and Senators. President of the World Federation of the Deaf Colin Allen and a parent representative will present on the importance and lifelong impact of effective early intervention and education.

Where: University House, 1 Balmain Crescent, Acton ACT When: 29 and 30 November 2012
