Meredith’s first contact with the Deaf community was as a teacher of the Deaf until she moved into interpreting. As an experienced Auslan interpreter Meredith has worked extensively interpreting with Deafblind people who use tactile Auslan. She is now a researcher at Monash University in Melbourne, and part of the team using Conversation Analysis to investigate how a visual language changes and new conventions develop as it becomes tactile or communication by touch. The aim is to produce research that will assist training for interpreters, case managers and communication guides who work with Deafblind people into the future.
