Information in Auslan

NDIS concepts in Auslan

Many NDIS concepts have not previously been translated in to Auslan so equivalent ways of signing them is required. A diverse linguistic team was formed to create the signs to ensure they are accurate and reflect the diversity of language in Auslan across Australia. These signs were created for the purpose of translating existing information in to Auslan, but they have been provided to help all Auslan speakers understand and talk about NDIS concepts in the same way.

Cultural and Linguistic Diversity Strategy

We developed and co-designed a Cultural and Linguistic Diversity (CALD) Strategy 2024–2028 (the Strategy).

Co-design means we worked with and learned from participants, friends, family, carers, NDIS staff and the disability community.

We co-designed the Strategy with over 800 people from CALD backgrounds.

This is our commitment to improving the NDIS so we can meet the cultural and language needs of all our participants.

To help us deliver the Strategy, we developed and co-designed an Action Plan.

It outlines the different steps we need to take to carry out the Strategy. There are 28 actions to complete.
