Hearing Impaired

Bowlers with a hearing impairment can bowl for Deaf Lawn Bowls WA (DLBWA), which is a subdivision of the WA Deaf Recreation Association and the national body is Deaf Sport Australia.  Typically, bowlers with a hearing impairment bowl for a mainstream club as well as for DLBWA.

People who are born deaf or became deaf at an early age (before language acquisition).  Deaf people identify themselves as part of a Deaf Culture and Community and are likely to use Auslan (Australian Sign Language) as a first or preferred language.
