Family-centred Irish Sign Language (ISL).

Our six week programme of Family-centred ISL will start next Wednesday, 15th May, 6.15pm – 7.30pm at our Resource Centre.

All the family are welcome.

Separate classes for adults and children running at the same time. This six-week programme will help parents, grandparents, siblings and other family members to understand the basic structure of ISL; variations in language (many signs for the same English word): ISL grammar and other important features. Vocabulary will be supported via our ISL everywhere website & iPhone app.

Children’s ISL classes will be delivered through age appropriate play, games and activities. This course is free but registration is vital as places are limited. For further information or to book a place please contact Theresa on 0879163168 or email sec@sharingthejourney.ie
