Signalong is a registered charity which provides resources and training in visual communication based on British Sign Language. It empowers children and adults with impaired communication to understand and express their needs, choices and desires by providing sign vocabulary for life and learning.
At Linwood School we strongly believe that signing supports the language development of many of our pupils.
All pupils and staff are encouraged to learn Signalong – so that we can ALL communicate with one another.
We have three Signalong tutors and courses are held regularly for school staff and parents/carers. We are also involved with training staff from local mainstream schools.
We occasionally hold ‘themed’ get togethers for parent/carers wishing to brush up on their skills and learn some new signs. If you would like to get involved, please call the school office.
