Participants will learn and practice the hand signs and visual symbols during the first session. Participants will also be able to walk out of the workshop with enough knowledge to utilize the system in their classrooms the next day. practice sheets and a key will be provided to each participant. Day 2 follow up session will include additional hands-on-practice and activities to incorporate the system into the classroom.
