WHAT DO SIGN GUIDES DO?

Our Sign Guides are trained to provide everyday communication support! This takes many forms and our team will discuss with you what your NDIS goals are and make sure our Sign Guides undertake the right activities to support you to achieve your NDIS goals. Some common things people book Sign Guides for include support to read through bills or letters, support out in the community to engage with local sports groups or teams, and training, education, and support for people who are still learning Auslan or have recently joined the Deaf/HoH community

HOW CAN I BOOK A SIGN GUIDE?

If you’re excited to start booking Sign Guides, we’re excited to help you do so! For our NDIS customers, our friendly Client Engagement Team (CET) will be your point of contact to lodge an Application for Services and setup a Service Agreement and from there, you will be assigned a Customer Advisor. After that, we will keep in regular contact to make sure you’re getting the services you want and see what other services you would like!

AUSLAN FOR FAMILIES (AFF)

Learn Auslan together as a family or social group

"AFF Has given our family so much"

– Mary-Beth, 34

WHAT is AUslan for Families?

Auslan for Families, called AFF, is our longest running service behind interpreting, and for good reason! In AFF, we teach you and your family, social group, sports team, or study mates Auslan, in a place, format, and context that’s right for you. Anyone in your daily life can join in with your AFF class to make sure you’re able to access the things in your life that truly matter to you. Generally delivered weekly in 2-hour blocks, AFF is a chance for you and your family or social group to learn how to communicate with the Deaf/HoH people in their lives!

WHO IS AFF RELEVANT TO?

Anybody! We teach AFF to customers and their football team, to customers and their family at home, and even to customers and their social group online. AFF is a perfect service for any NDIS participants who face barriers to communication, not just Deaf/HoH people. We teach AFF to people who are nonverbal and their families, people who are living with impacted speech and the people in their lives, and to young families with a child making use of a hearing aid/s or cochlear implant.

HOW CAN I START GETTING AFF?

We would love an opportunity to support you and your family to communicate together! For our NDIS customers, our friendly Client Engagement Team (CET) will be your point of contact to lodge an Application for Services and setup a Service Agreement and from there, you will be assigned a Customer Advisor. After that, we will keep in regular contact to make sure you’re getting the services you want and see what other services you would like!

NDIS INTERPRETING

Qualified interpreters suitable for jobs all through perth and WA

"Interpreters are important for my access"

– Hamish, 21

WHAT IS INTERPRETING?

Interpreting, sometimes called translating, is a service that converts spoken English or Auslan into other, and vice versa. Translating, however, is when Auslan is written into English or vice versa. Our interpreters provide interpreting and translating services all across Perth and WA in hospitals, schools, appointments, public events, private functions, and even in people’s homes. If you need to communicate with someone who doesn’t understand Auslan, then an Access Plus interpreter is the person you need to book!

WHY ARE INTERPRETERS IMPORTANT?

Every day our customers go about their normal lives, going shopping, heading to work, engaging with their family, and participating in recreation. For those times when someone Deaf/HoH engages with a hearing person, or someone who doesn’t know Auslan, communication can be difficult. Writing things down isn’t always the best alternative and yet Deaf/HoH have a right to access to information and services at the same time and in the same way as everybody else. At times like this, our NDIS customers book an Access Plus interpreter to ensure they can access the services and things they want.

HOW DO I book an NDIS interpreter using my NDIS plan?

Many of our customers utilise the funding in their NDIS plan to book interpreters! For our NDIS customers, our friendly Client Engagement Team (CET) will be your point of contact to lodge an Application for Services and setup a Service Agreement and from there, you will be assigned a Customer Advisor. After that, we will keep in regular contact to make sure you’re getting the services you want and see what other services you would like!
