This training is over two mornings. Session 1 covers why we use

signing with children with Down syndrome and the signs for manners, animals, food, family and other people, and the alphabet.

Session 2 covers 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.

Cost for one member of staff £80, for two members of staff £100.

Family members welcome £20.

Feedback from last year:

· I was able to memorise the actions easily due to the way the   speaker described each sign. Better than a previous course

· Good structured course with good pace

· There was a good balance of listening and  practical. Good support booklet too

· This course has been simple to follow and given me some fantastic strategies and ideas to use with and pass onto children in my    classroom

· Fantastic course, really enjoyed learning the signs. Great pace. I enjoyed learning a new skill and I’m looking forward to using it with the children I work with
