Topic: Using Signing (like Key Word Signs) in the Early Years

We know that signing, visuals and non-verbal communication support all children, especially in an Early Childhood environment. It can be on the playground, in the classroom, during transitions or even during music experiences.

Hannah Keogh from Occumax will work with teachers, educators and parents to support the children by teaching essential signs and how to use these correctly.

The signs will mostly be Key Word Signs, and Hannah encourages participants to bring a few words along that are essential in their environments.
