ISL everywhere


About Us

The ‘ISL Everywhere’ project was developed by Sharing the Journey, the Irish Deaf Society and the Centre for Deaf Studies in conjunction with the Digital Skills WebElevate programme and part funded by the Department of Justice.

ISL refers to Irish Sign Language the native language of the Deaf Community in Ireland.

‘ISL Everywhere’ was designed specifically to support families of deaf and hard of hearing children learning ISL.(IDS).

Free, easy to access and easy-to-use ‘ISL Everywhere’ is invaluable for anyone wanting to learn Irish Sign Language.

The ‘ISL Everywhere’ glossary allows almost instant access to the most commonly used words and phrases in a young child’s life.
