Primary Sign is working together with the National Deaf Children's Society during their Fingerspellathon. This event not only encourages communication and teaches a new, useful skill but raises much needed funds for Deaf children and young people. We are giving participants access to our alphabet module to help with their fingerspelling.

Debbie Reynolds, who runs Seen to be Heard Ltd, Blackburn, said that children without hearing impediments who learn British Sign Language can improve their literacy skills.
The headteacher at St Paul’s RC Primary School, Blackburn who has trialed her Seen to be Heard Primary Sign programme said it was having a positive impact on children’s listening and speaking in the classroom. Debbie, who is hard of hearing, developed the scheme as 85 per cent of deaf children now attend mainstream school.
It is a new skill for hearing children to learn. It is a life skill and helps with literacy and learning. Learning sign language uses both sides of the brain and improves learning by 90 per cent. It is extremely good for building confidence and self esteem.
