Communication is a vital part of life, both in school and out in the wider community. Good communication skills help us to build relationships, share our knowledge and understanding and express our wants and needs.

We know that there are lots of reasons why some adults or children cannot communicate verbally and that using signs to support our talking helps everyone, not just these individuals.

Have a look at the videos below to see the signs the children have learnt:
