Family Sign Language (FSL) is a curriculum developed by NDCS and it is unlike traditional British Sign Language (BSL) courses. FSL specifically focusses on teaching the signs families need for children in the early years to support communication development.
FSL teaches the signs and phrases needed for nursery rhymes, stories, playing make-believe games as well as the tools for practical communication about food, sleeping and nappy changing. FSL encourages the whole family to participate in sharing the learning, communicating and signing.
The course will be running over 6 weeks on Wednesday Evenings
