I had the privilege in a hard of hearing environment and witnessed first-hand the importance and advantages of Irish Sign Language. Learning such a basic skill can elevate the inclusion levels of our schools and include all children in all lessons. The advantages of including sign language in the classroom include: inclusion, awareness, learning a new language, passing on the new language to peers and creating awareness as well as many more! I have here provided the letters of the alphabet which will give you an introduction to ISL. There are may courses which will be appearing on the deaf.ie website soon if you would like the opportunity to learn more about ISL.
