Session 2 will cover signs for the home, school day, colours,descriptions, time/days, questions and connective/link words. Followed by a discussion on how behaviour can be addressed through introducing signing.

Both sessions will include practice of useful phrases and familiar children’s songs. A book “Signing and Down syndrome”, covering the signs in this course is available for £7.

 Impressed with how much I have learnt over the two sessions.
 Really interactive and enjoyable.
