New Irish Sign Language support website launched

ISL Everywhere is a collaborative project between Sharing the Journey (a voluntary support organisation for parents of deaf and hard of hearing children), the Irish Deaf Society and the Centre for Deaf Studies.

ISL Everywhere was launched in late March 2013 and is an online resource. It aims to support parents of deaf and hard of hearing children to learn Irish Sign Language (ISL).

The free website is designed to be accessed from smart phones or any other internet-enabled devices, so parents can access words needed for daily routines at home or on the go. Click here to view the promo for ISL Everywhere

The mobile website includes over 1,000 signs and phrases needed for daily routines, focusing on the everyday vocabulary of a child's life; a word association feature which helps parents expand their child's vocabulary and their understanding of the world around them and there is also printable resource materials and a rainy day activities section.
