A recent study of young people, both Deaf and hearing, across the UK, found over 90% want to learn British Sign Language. Simply Signing sessions are perfectly placed to help children and adults learn the lifetime skill of signing, together in a fun and informal way that provides enhanced interactions for all concerned. Children naturally learn more when activities are engaging and they get to move their bodies. Signing ticks those boxes and as a result we see that children are enabled to retain, and recall information with ease.
Simply Signing sessions use Sign Supported English (SSE) approach to BSL – where BSL signs are used alongside speech, in English word order.
This course of 6 sessions will include:
The signed alphabet (and the importance of fingerspelling)
Feelings and wellness
Out and about
Basic Deaf awareness, history and culture – as well as exploring other ways in which we communicate.
Course fees include a weekly handout. Please email: info@invis-Ability.org.uk to book your place and get payment information
“Research shows when signing is added to the (preschool) curriculum, children not only find signing fun but also show a significant improvement in receptive English vocabulary and retain information for a longer period of time.” Daniels, M; Dancing with Words
