What is Key Word Sign?

Key Word Sign (KWS) is the use of manual signs and natural gesture to support communication in children and adults with communication difficulties. KWS uses a core vocabulary to communicate concepts and ideas and each “word” is matched to an Auslan hand sign to further support communication.
KWS is also a great tool to support and enhance verbal language in children and adults.  
 

Who is this workshop aimed at?

 
The workshop will be relevant to:
  • Parents,
  • Grandparents,
  • Siblings,
  • Aunts/Uncles,
  • Other people with carering responsibilities outside of the education setting. 
No previous signing experience is necessary as this is a beginner level workshop.
This workshop is run by an accredited Key Word Sign Australia Facilitator.
 
Come along and learn KWS for the first time, or if you need a refresher!
