South African Sign Language

Many of the learners at Thuthukani have a speech and/or hearing impairment. We have a South African Sign Language instructor who teaches the teachers and learners South African Sign Language as an alternative way to communicate. She also does sign language interpretation during our school assembly to keep all the teachers and learners up to date with their SASL and she teaches words linked to the current themes in the CAPS Gr R to 5 curriculum. Sign Language is a visual activity, and we find that our learners pick up the high frequency signs very quickly.
