Help the deaf feel more included

The opportunity to add learning sign language to your New Year’s resolutions or 2017 goals is being presented to the public of Barbados.

And, this is one of the 2017 wishes of persons in the local deaf community, that more people learn to sign and communicate with them.

The National Disabilities Unit will resume its Sign Language classes on Monday, January 16, 2017.

Basic Level I classes for adults will be conducted at the Irving Wilson School, The Pine, St. Michael, two evenings per week – Mondays and Wednesdays, or Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.

A Trainer of Trainers Sign Language course will also be held at the same location on Tuesdays, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. There is a fee for each course.

Persons interested in registering for these two courses should call the National Disabilities Unit at 535-3600 or 535-3612, between 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.  They may also register at the Irving Wilson School, on Monday, January 16, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.
