Annabelle has also written the below introduction, explaining her interest in learning Auslan and how she got started.
Hi there, I’m Annabelle. I am an osteopath and I'm learning Auslan. If you are deaf, hard of hearing, and/or use sign to communicate - and need an osteopath - maybe I can help you. I may not be a replacement for an interpreter just yet, but my basic conversational skills are coming along and I just wanted to let you know that I am here and happy to help if you need. I started learning Auslan from two of my great friends, through their fantastic short course 'Magic Hands', which I highly recommend to all! It's a great, supportive, relaxed and fun environment to learn Auslan, as well as its history and culture.
