about the innovation

Sign Language for Inclusive Early Childhood Education

What we do?

We provide training and access to creative, inclusive and quality resources and tools to parents and educators, ensuring that every child they engage can excel in their learning. We also advocate for reforms that promote inclusive and equal learning opportunities for children who are deaf, including those with speech and language delay issues. Our vision is for all early years programs globally to introduce their National Sign Languages as a second language of insturction in their programs by 2030.

Why we do it?

Children don’t have to choose the value of education they get based on their background or disability.
