🎉 Happy Auslan Day!

Today is the 13th of April, a typical day for most but significant for the Deaf Community. Why? Because in 1989, the first Auslan dictionary was published, granting the Deaf Community a formal recognition of their language - Aulsan, a word made up by combining the words Australian Sign Language.

As we honour Auslan Day, we also recognise the hurdles individuals face with Deafness or hard of hearing when finding employment. We understand these challenges, which is why we provide specialised employment services tailored to help secure meaningful work that resonates with those people's passions.

If you or someone you know is navigating a recent diagnosis or seeking support in the job market, our dedicated employment services team is here to assist you! Contact us on 1300 944 306, Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

SA MP’s bowled over by talented blind cricketers

South Australia’s best blind cricketers yesterday celebrated a sensational 2023/24 season with a reception held at Parliament House. We might be a small state, but our sporting prowess is mighty. We currently have 10 South Australian blind cricketers representing Australia in the men’s and women’s teams, and we’ve had a great year, including competing in Birmingham at the International Blind Sports Association Games.

See Differently’s Braille instructor Michael Zannis was one of the cricketers acknowledged – and with the most Australian caps (93) his commitment and love for the sport is inspiring.

It was great to hear from the Premier Peter Malinauskas MP and Sports Minister Katrine Hildyard MP and hear of their commitment to our athletes and sports inclusion. A number of other MP’s joined the celebration, and we are grateful to our local MP Dana Wortley MP - Member for Torrens for hosting the event and her continued support for the South Australian blind and low vision community.

Sport is a fantastic way for people to stay healthy, to feel good and to connect with others and See Differently is working to promote and support people with low vision to try the wide range of sports on offer.

🏏 Thank you See Differently with the Royal Society for the Blind for joining us for this special occasion. Along with Ministers Nat Cook MP and Katrine Hildyard MP it was an honour to host our Blind Cricket South Australia team members in our State Parliament to celebrate their achievements in Birmingham, UK and Queensland.
