Training on Early Years Signing

Be more confident & communicate better with children in your care

Why Learn Sign Language?

Early Years Signing, which is BSL (British Sign Language) simplified, allows you to communicate with children of all abilities and for ‘typical’ children, it helps to develop their learning, increase their IQ, develop their fine motor skills as well as increasing their vocabulary and comprehension.

Through the use of sign, you are also able to effectively communicate with children who have little, delayed or no speech, hearing or other learning difficulties as well as ‘newcomers’.

 

By implementing signing into your facility you are helping the development of the children in your care as well as offering parents a higher level of professionalism, as supported by over 20 years of academic research*.
