About the event

This incredibly popular and highly interactive workshop teaches approximately 50 everyday signs plus an additional 30 signs for nursery rhymes including Galumph, Kookaburra and the Rainbow Song. Usually you learn an extra 20 or so signs throughout the workshop.

Studies show that introducing sign language as early as possible for children with Down syndrome is highly beneficial for:

  • parents and siblings of children with Down syndrome or intellectual disability aged 0 up to 12 years
  • early childhood and primary school educators
  • grandparents and family friends

Presented by the amazing Lisa Dodd. Lisa is a qualified Key Word Sign presenter and Auslan (Australian sign language) tutor who has taught sign language for over 20 years. She has used sign language for the past 24 years ever since her son, Cameron, who has Down syndrome, was born. Lisa’s two daughters are also fluent in sign language and they all have been able to effectively communicate with Cameron from a very young age.
