RESIDENTS LEARN NEW LANGUAGE SKILLS

05 December 2017

Residents at Love Walk have recently been enjoying Speech and Language sessions, which help to improve both spoken and written language skills.

One of our newer residents, Alyson, is very skilled at British Sign Language and residents agreed that with her help they would like to learn some basic sign language. The session was attended by nearly all of our residents.  They learned how to say “Hello”, “Thank you”, “How are you?” as well as the alphabet and how to spell their names. Some of the group spelled “Mission Care” in sign language - the back row were signing “Mission” and the front row were signing “Care” (as shown in the picture).

The whole activity was very engaging and very much enjoyed!
