In 2021 AATD(SA) did their first presentation as part of the online Inclusive Education Expo coordinated by SERU. The topic was hearing loss amongst Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, unpacking current research and teaching strategies.
The concept was to develop a free, easily accessible resource, sharing the expertise of TODs in SA. Whilst it was a learning curve for those involved, it was also an excellent professional learning opportunity.

Info: Each presenter will speak/sign for 10-15 minutes, covering a segment. Meetings to prepare the presentation can occur online. The presentation recording is done face to face in Adelaide at SERU.
