The new Government is declaring its 'committment to education' wide and far, but what are they planning to do to support children who use Auslan, their schools and families and carers? Bilby Publishing, Australia's only Sign Language publishing house has prepared a letter that addresses the need for funding support for Auslan, which is used by children who are Deaf, Speech Impaired have Cerebral Palsy, Downs Syndrom, CHARGES, Autisum and intellectual disabilities.

Sign this letter, which will be delivered to Minister Julie Gillard,and help support our Australian children in need.
