The National Deaf Children’s Society (NDCS) is running 2 upcoming workshops:
‘Making Swimming Deaf-Friendly’ – 05/02/15 – Loughborough (see here for further information)
‘British Sign Language for Swimming’ – 12/02/15 – Loughborough (see here for further information)

The workshops will support swimming teachers and coaches to make simple changes to make activities deaf-friendly and develop confidence communicating with deaf children and young people.

The courses are free and strong priority will be given to teachers and coaches who commit to both workshops.

Topics include:

• Communication
• How to adapt your activities
• Tips for welcoming deaf children
• Swimming-specific terminology in BSL
• Giving instructions and feedback in BSL

Book a place by completing the Deaf-Friendly Swimming Booking Form and returning via post or email to the details on the form.
