About the presenters

Alex Jones needs little introduction. He is a third-generation Deaf man. He is a proud father of two children: one is also Deaf, and one is a CODA. Alex is an innovator, a communicator, and community leader. He is a co-founder of Ai-Media and has been on numerous boards and working groups. Many families would know him as the face in the NextSense Auslan tutor.

Alex and Fiona have been working at the Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability.

Fiona Graney is a Director on the Aussie Deaf Kids board. She is a lawyer and mother and has had a severe sensorineural hearing loss since contracting meningitis as a toddler. Fiona has learnt so much from Alex during their time working at the Disability Royal Commission and wanted to share some of his thoughts and wisdom with our Aussie Deaf Kids community.
