Signalong for parents


"It's not just about talking. It isn't easy to see and recognise what happens beneath the surface of children's communication.


Being able to listen, pay attention, play and understand are the fundamental building blocks of communication. Adults play a crucial role in supporting these skills. If a child can't listen and understand, they'll struggle to talk.

Signalong is based on British Sign Language, using unaltered BSL signs wherever possible. The difference between Signalong and other sign-supported communication systems, apart from our much wider range of signs, is the way that they are presented. When the sign has been selected, a description is worked out. This follows a consistent method of handshape, orientation, placement and movement.


Signalong is flexible and adaptable to suit your child by using key-word signing at their level and recording person specific signs in a way that they can be easily understood." quoted from
