At speech and language therapy we can offer an additional service of supporting individuals and families who communicate, or wish to communicate via sign language.
Sign language is a non-verbal language which uses visual gestures and signs as a form of communicating. Sign language is commonly used within the deaf community and also by some individuals who are unable to speak due to an acquired or developmental condition.
Sign language can additionally be used to support language learning and for individuals with limited communication.
What will sign language at speech and language therapy involve?
For any individuals wishing to communicate via singing, the speech and language therapist will be able to provide training and support on different types of sign language. This may involve teaching the individual, their carers and other professionals involved in their care on how to use sign language.
Who can benefit from sign language?
Individuals of all ages and abilities can benefit from singing. Singing can be used as an individual's main method of communication, or it can additionally support those with limited communication. The individual's parents or carers can also benefit from using sign language in helping the individual to communicate more effectively.
