Family sign language video goes viral
19 January 2012
A video created by a NDCS supporter in support of NDCS’s family sign language campaign has gone viral on the youtube website, being viewed over a million times.
Following this, a petition calling on the Government in England to ensure that families who need to learn sign language to be able to communicate with their deaf child get the support they need has now been signed by over 2,000 people.
NDCS is asking the Department for Education to consider rolling out a pilot across England that provided families with access to family-friendly sign language courses in their area. The pilots were described by the Prime Minister as a success. Following an initial meeting last year, NDCS will be submitting further proposals to the Department soon.
