Signalong Foundation Course

Signalong is a key word sign-supported communication system based on British sign language and is used in spoken word order. It uses speech, sign, body language, facial expression and voice tone to reference the link between sign and word. Signalong is an alternative key-word signing communication method used by individuals with a speech, language and communication need.

“The Foundation Course develops skills to a level where practitioners can apply signing in their own environment and includes some elements of communication theory. It is a 15-hour course normally delivered over an extended period, and is the basic building block of SIGNALONG training and the Tutor training programme.”
