Signalong Two Day Course

Date: 
08th June 2020

Signalong is a key word sign-supported communication system based on British sign language. Signalong is a total communication system and is used in spoken word order. It uses speech, sign, body language, facial expression and voice tone to reference the link between sign and word.

A central tenet of Signalong is “one concept, one sign” which is different to other British Sign Language based systems that require an understanding of the context in order to distinguish meaning. People who have learning difficulties, especially those with Autism, may find it difficult to differentiate the context. Signalong is not intended to replace speech, but short sentences are much more easily understood than long and complex ones.

No prior knowledge necessary.
