It is used by Teachers and Learning Assistants to embed the Signs for Success programme in schools, by Early Years Practitioners to embed the programme in nursery settings – with a pack to lend to Parents - and by Childminders and Parents to embed the programme in the home.

It is also suitable for Health Visitors, Speech Therapists, Libraries, Nurses, Parent Support Workers etc., and a wide variety of organisations working with parents and young children.

We had an hour and a half training from Kathy Robinson with suggestions on how signing could be implemented in our setting. We decided as a whole staff team that we wanted to use signing throughout the centre and generally in conversations with children in free flow and with parents.

How does the Kit work in settings?

One member of staff becomes the Signing co-ordinator and shares one-sign-a-day with work colleagues and parents who use that sign together with the spoken word in a wide range of curricula activities and normal every day routines.

Many schools use the programme with children up to the age of 11 years throughout the curriculum (in maths, science, geography etc.)

How does the Kit help behaviour?

Through sign language, children are encouraged to look, listen, think and learn. Noise and confusion in the classroom is replaced by peace and calm.

What about behaviour in the home?

In learning one behaviour sign a day and using it in activities and routines, parents expectations are made crystal clear to the child. The child knows what is expected of them at any given time because they can see the expectation. This might be a “thank- you” after they receive something or a “please” if they want something.

How does it help literacy?

In lots of tried and tested ways – but for example, the fingerspelling alphabet can be learned in less than an hour with the WOW Fingerspelling poster and book. Watch Melanie learning to read and spelling ‘alligator’ in seconds on the Home page.

How is the Kit different from the Learn English Early!Pack?

The Learn English Early! Pack has been designed for parents of the 0 – 4’s, although it is also used by childminders and nursery nurses too.

The Sign-a-Day Kit provides curricula activities appropriate to the 0 – 6 age group as well as additional resource materials. It is recommended for early years practitioners, teachers and carers.

If you are a parent and want the Kit then please contact us as we have a Ten Steps to Success guideline for embedding the programme in the home and with extended family members.

As a parent, which programme would you recommend I buy?

It depends on the age of your child, whether you want to gain a qualification, or want a particular focus such as positive behaviour. Read the information on the programmes carefully then visit the Evidence pages where case studies, reviews and research will guide you as to which programme is the most suitable for you.

As a setting, which would you recommend I buy?

The Sign-a-Day Kit is perfect to roll out in settings and we would recommend buying an extra Kit to lend to parents. Ideally, each classroom should have their own Kit. In many cases, we are training individual staff on the Signing to advance Speech, Language and Communication” course and the remaining staff learn one sign a day with the Kit. This provides the basis for rolling out parenting programmes.

Which children benefit from the Signs for Success methodology?

Hearing children, deaf children, children with additional needs and those for whom English is an additional language (EAL). Signs for Success is truly inclusive; everyone benefits!
