A range of programs are available to support parents of deaf children.

Auslan support for parents is provided through both day and evening classes. Classes are delivered at the school Tuesday and Thursday mornings and on Tuesday evenings with a beginners and more advanced class to select from. Queries re the times, fees and bookings for these courses can be made through the school office.

‘Communicating with your Deaf Child’, facilitated by our speech pathologists, gives parents skills to support their child’s communication and is a pre-cursor to individual speech and languages therapy sessions. These sessions are advertised through our school newsletter, the Furlong Flyer.

Other informative sessions and workshops for parents, families and friends are offered throughout the year and are also advertised through our school newsletter, the Furlong Flyer.
