ASLIA made a submission to the Inquiry into the Hearing Health & Wellbeing of Australia and made three recommendations:

That the Australian Government

ii) commits to making vital health care and wellbeing information available in Auslan; and

iii) funds home-based Auslan training for families under the NDIS.
