This fun and interactive course will introduce you the basics of
vocabulary for signing with a variety of people. Whether a child, a
family member, neighbour, someone at work, or someone on the bus, by the
end of this short course you will be able to have a basic conversation
You will learn the ABC's, fingerspelling, general greetings and
introductions, days of the week, numbers, foods, colours, feelings, and
much more. In Signed language, gestures of the hands, the face and the
body are used to produce the language rather than the vocal chords and
mouth. The classes are fun and use practical and creative ways to allow
you to practice and learn the signing vocabulary.

skills which you will be able to use on a regular basis. Teaching
assistants, early childhood educators, support people and anyone with
non-verbal children will find this course incredibly valuable.
