​Presentation:

The first day of this workshop focuses on skill development in the first language of deaf children who use sign language and the impact this has later on their narrative development in written English. Participants will analyse sign language video footage and identify areas of need that can be considered in planning and programming for individual students.

Pre-requisite:  Participants will be required to have fluency in Auslan to allow independent access to the videoed materials.  To facilitate discussions, it is also expected that participants will have completed a sign linguistics course prior to attending this workshop., this includes previous programs presented by Michelle and Michelle.
