Our approach to inclusive learning

Our approach is complimentary to phonics, and has been shown to really get the whole class engaged with emphasis on kinaesthetic learning  Often children will continue to learn fingerspelling and basic signing just for fun.  Through the stories and extensive online activities, children learn and develop their communication skills together.
