Communicating with Pediatric Patients Who Use Sign Language - Who Knew It Could Be This Easy & Fun?!

Sunday, November 11
1:45 PM - 3:15 PM
Location: Meeting Room 13/14 - Convention Center

This is a fun, interactive workshop intended to help healthcare professionals be better able to communicate with their young patients who use signs and also prepare them to introduce new signs to children. It covers 30+ single ASL signs, the manual alphabet, and numbers 1-10. Participants will learn and practice the signs and learn tips to help them effectively use signs in their practice. Participants will learn how sign language encourages speech and language development, enhances overall communication and can reduce frustration for children who are not yet able to effectively communicate using speech. The information presented is based in research and backed by the instructor’s 30 years of experience.
