Hi my name is Liz, and for 20 years I worked as a Registered General Adult Nurse in the NHS. I have been around sign language all my life, as both my parents are profoundly deaf and use British Sign Language. My daughter has Down Syndrome and I was keen to learn Signalong as its a key word sign-supported communication system and knew this would help my daughter’s additional needs. I became a Signalong Tutor in 2021.
I am passionate about inclusion and breaking down barriers, and truly believe signing is an amazing skill to have for people with or without disabilities, so we can all communicate together. I am keen to get started as a Signalong for Babies Trainer to show how this great tool encourages early development of language skills and all the other benefits that goes with it.
