Signalong provides training and resources to assist those with communication difficulties and English as an additional language.
Signalong is a key word sign-supported communication system based on British sign language and is used in spoken word order. It uses speech, sign, body language, facial expression and voice tone to reference the link between sign and word.
We are delighted to invite you to share access to our Sign Library, our database of sign descriptions. You will be able to research signs with drawings to enhance your understanding (where available) and create your very own reference library. Try before you buy, it has a free trial period to allow the user to understand what the site offers. To create your account and explore the library click on the members button at the top of the page.

Unlike British Sign Language training or that provided by some other organisations, Signalong training focuses on developing communication skills rather than teaching blocks of signs, many of which will be quickly forgotten through lack of use.
Tutor Training is for those with experience of sign-supported communication who wish to train others. The tutor training course is a comprehensive 4/5 day programme for people who have experienced of signing in the context of learning difficulties, autism or the particular field in which they need to use augmentative communication.
Our new manual will allow us to develop the Signalong training that we currently provide for all our partnership agencies across Lothian (especially our education colleagues). Find out more
