Would you attend a taster session to learn sign language if it was aimed specifically at teachers?

    I work for a charity (Action o Hearing Loss) and I am trying to raise the profile of learning sign language in school for SEND students, there's so much research that shows it helps with literacy and language acquisition, especially for ASD and EAL. What are your thoughts on using sign language from primary school age readily in the classroom? Do you do it already? Would you like guidance on how to use it more?

    Would you attend a taster session to learn some sign language if it was aimed specifically at teachers?
