Recently there was a very interesting article in the Sydney Morning Herald.

Cochlear implants, technology and vaccinations diminish use of Australian sign language

The article discusses a number of factors that have impacted the use of Australian Sign Language (Auslan) over the last few decades.

In Australia it is estimated there are only 8,500 Auslan users. This is less than half the number of sign language users in New Zealand.

The article is well worth a read.
