Family Sign Language

Module main decoration

Since 2014, Exeter Deaf Academy has offered free Family Sign Language Weekends for families, friends and professionals that may know or work with a Deaf child.

Qualified and experienced Deaf Academy staff trainers deliver the National Deaf Children’s Society (NDCS) accredited Family Sign Language course in an inclusive and friendly environment. Split over two-days, a crèche, lunch and accommodation for families travelling from far away is also provided.

The weekend sessions are a fantastic opportunity for families, friends and professionals to learn essential communication tools, tips and build vocabulary to help support their Deaf child’s development in home settings. 

The next Family Sign Language weekend is:

19-20 May 2018
