The Signalong Group Profile

Sign-supported communication helps to overcome underachievement and exclusion for people who find words difficult. It is particularly useful for those with learning difficulties or autism.

Signalong is the most extensive and accessible signing system currently available. The signs are described following a consistent method, supported by line drawings, showing facial expression where appropriate.

Children with language delay often find that having another way to express themselves removes the block to developing speech and signing may become redundant (Success!).
Others who have speech difficulties will find that other people cna understnad them better, and those who find words hard to understand benefit from having visual clues to what is being said.

The results of better communication are:
* greater fulfilment of potential
*greater independence
*reduced disturbed and challenging behaviour
*improved self-esteem
*improved relationships

The Signalong Group has published the widest-ranging vocabulary of signs in Europe, and works with other organisations to promote the total commuunciation approach, focusing on the needs and abilities of the individual.

In addition to its publications and non-print resources, the charity provides training through its national network of independent tutors, and free advice and sign research.
