KEY WORD SIGN BEGINNERS WORKSHOP
At this 1 day workshop participants will learn the history behind Key Word Sign and why the switch was made from Makaton to Key Word Sign. Key Word Sign is not a language, as it doesn’t have its own grammar and syntax. Participants will learn over 100 signs in this workshop including sign production techniques, numbers and alphabet.
During this workshop, participants will learn new skills, knowledge and build confidence in producing each sign. Key Word Sign used with spoken language enhances understanding and communication for people with receptive and expressive communication difficulties.
Participants who have previously attended a Visual Communication Consultants Key Word Sign Workshop in the past 6 months and have not used it are encouraged to attend this workshop as a refresher course. Only participants who have previously attended ‘Visual Communication Consultants Key Word Sign Beginner’s Workshop’ will be eligible for future Visual Communication Consultants Workshops.
Participants will receive a resource package, which includes hard copy of signs, presentation notes and reference material.
