Over the past few months Grampians Regional Communication Service have been involved in presenting Key Word Signing (KWS) to members of the local community. The workshop has been presented in two parts including a basic introduction and part two focusing on specific signs used when working with adults with complex communication needs. Pinarc Disability Support have previously provided these workshops to families of children attending early intervention, however these workshops have previously not targeted people working with adults who have complex communication needs.
Grampians RCS took up this fantastic opportunity to be involved to promote the use of keyword sign within our local community. In particular working closely with day services, residential accommodation and individual service providers to include people with complex communication needs.
