Our teaching method is simple – identify and build people’s weaknesses and strengths in using Auslan.

As you may know, TAFE and deaf services organisations offer classes in Auslan. We aim not to compete with them but to enhance that training by filling gaps or missing links that are not offered elsewhere including how to read finger-spelling effectively, medical signs classes for interpreters, story-telling, use of depicting signs, signs and real meanings of the signs used, and grammar in Auslan.

Strathmore Wood offers both face-to-face teaching and visual/online learning methods such as Zoom. This will ensure that people in every corner of Australia can learn Auslan and use Auslan actively with the Deaf Community.  The learning is more topic based rather than teaching Auslan as a whole and learning can be provided in a specialised and/or customised manner.

Strathmore Wood provides Auslan learning on both a fee-for-service or NDIS funded basis. Please note that we are not NDIS registered – that is, we can only support plan managed and self managed NDIS participants.
