signalong introductory course for parent/carer members of a child with down's syndrome
Bexley Voice and Bexley DS Group hosted a free one day introductory Signalong course for parents/carer members who have a child or young person up to age 25 with Down’s Syndrome, on the 16th of March.
‘Signalong’ training focuses on developing communication skills including: aspects of total communication, such as facial expression, body language and voice tone; plus simplification of language and keyword selection.
Thank you to the parents who came along and to Iona Stephens for teaching the course.
Thanks also go to Claire and Lisa, our Bexley Voice volunteers who worked hard to get the funding and organise the free event.
