The HMR Primary Care Academy has linked with Sign4Allcommunications to provide sign language training.
A look at what the days offered...
The training covered the following topics:
How to be an effective verbal and non-verbal communicator within the workplace – this covers the correct usage and delivery of sign language.
Contextualisation of the hearing impaired/deaf customer journey through your environment awareness of the deaf perspective and identification of potential areas of concern or conflict.
Creating and training staff in the use of a bespoke sign vocabulary for your environment.
We use role-play and interactive activities to elicit an understanding of real-life scenarios and situations.
Access to a site-specific video library of signs in common use in your setting
Everyone is asked by the facilitator, to view and keep the two sheets below so they could start practising the alphabet - as this would help them with the course.
