British Sign Language (BSL) Instructor Nikki James, in partnership with our Occupational Therapist Sarah Ankers, delivers a fun and engaging weekend which consistently receives positive reviews from all of our attendees. Nikki is a native BSL user, qualified and experienced in delivering the National Deaf Children’s Society (NDCS) accredited Family Sign Language workshop.
Our Family Sign Language Weekends are suitable for relations and friends of a deaf child and professionals who may work with deaf children and would like to learn some basic sign language, get tips on Deaf Awareness and build their signing vocabulary. We aim to make it as fun as possible. There aren’t any exams or assessments and you can learn at your own pace.
The informal workshop is split over two days in an inclusive and friendly environment. Both days begin at 10am, finishing at 4pm on Saturday and 3pm on Sunday. Lunch is included and there is free parking at the Academy. Accommodation is available for families travelling from far away. Places are limited and offered on a first come basis.
