Meet Lynda


Hi I’m Lynda.

My parents had 6 children and four of us are deaf! Being deaf had a big impact on our education, employment and goals. We four became deafer as we grew older. Thus I now have cochlear implants.

My dad always said ‘Yes you can Lynda’. This helped me to take control of my life as I learnt how to deal with getting through school and looking for work. I had a dream of going to uni and I finally did this at the age of 33. I love learning and finding out new things.
As a young adult, I met other deaf people and learnt Auslan. So I am a part of two worlds – Deaf and hearing. I learnt to communicate and live in both worlds.

In my work, I have supported children, young adults and adults in school, at home and in the community.

I would like to meet people with disability or their families to support them in exploring options and possibilities for their goals that they can put into action.

The skills I can offer are:

  • Working out goals
  • Creating a time table and strategies to achieve them
  • Build up people’s confidence in themselves, in learning and their skills

I have plans for lots of little trips this year which include going to Adelaide to see my sister march in the National Marching competition!

Get Involved. We would love to meet you!
