The course will run 24th April and 1st May, 9.30 to 11.30am both mornings. Places are still available. It can be booked by visiting our website: Signing and Down syndrome | Down Syndrome T&SS (


Session 1 will cover 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 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.

COST: £80 per professional (£20 for second person from same school)/£20 per family member.

· A very useful course. Was good to be able to practice the signs straight away.
