This paper examines the relationship between the Deaf, their language, Auslan (Australian Sign Language), and the encompassing dominant hearing society and its culture in the context of the development of effective language policies for the Deaf, not only within the context of schooling but in the years prior to formal education and beyond the school. The paper has developed out of an initial response by AUSLAB (the Australian Sign Language Advisory Board, formed by the Australian Association of the Deaf) to the Federal Government’s Green Paper, (Commonwealth of Australia 1990), later superseded by the White Paper, (Commonwealth of Australia 1991a & b).
