Event Description Signalong is a sign supporting communication system which has been developed to help children and adults to acquire language skills and to aid where there are communication difficulties.

The Signalong system is compatible with Makaton. Many of the signs are identical or similar. This course will include:
- signing skills
- aspects of communication and language development
- practical signing and communication skills

Candidates will be offered 15 hours of training and ALL sessions must be attended.

It is known that visual cues are extremely beneficial in supporting children with their language development. When practitioners are confident with their own signing skills, children can blossom and become more confident communicators themselves. Practitioners do not need a huge vocabulary of signs. Knowledge of key words and simple phrases will equip adults to provide effective support for all children.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS APPLY. Practitioners must read the attached documents before requesting a place. By proceeding with the booking, you agree to abide by our terms and conditions. 
Event Outcomes Signing skills to support children to be confident communicators themselves.
