Deaf Children Australia is conducting this one-of-a-kind national workshop aimed at providing deaf and hard of hearing (DHH) youth with the skills, tools, and confidence to navigate their way successfully through high school. Whether your child is preparing for, or currently in high school, we will look at :

  • creating new friends
  • managing bullying / cyber-bullying and reporting it
  • navigating having more than one teacher
  • going from primary school with a deaf facility to a mainstream high school
  • knowing how to explain your needs to teachers who are new to DHH students
  • standing out as being different
  • having confidence to speak out

StepUp2HighSchool is led by Deaf and hard of hearing mentors. They have lived experience and are passionate about supporting young people, to help them build self-esteem and to reach their goals.

A bilingual environment of Auslan and spoken English is offered to support all forms of communication. Auslan interpreters will be present and live captions will be available.

StepUp2HighSchool takes place via Zoom and runs on AEDT time.
