Signalong tutors launch Young Epilepsy Manual

Young Epilepsy has its very own Signalong manual, thanks to a generous donation from education technology specialist JISC.

The Young Epilepsy Topic Vocabulary Manual features 400 words specially chosen by the charity’s staff. The book was commissioned to meet the needs of students at St Piers, Young Epilepsy’s specialist school and further education college.

Young Epilepsy Chief Executive David Ford said: “This is a really exciting development and we’re really proud of our Signalong manual. It will help St Piers’ students and teachers alike and I’d like to say a huge thanks to everyone involved in developing the manual and to JISC for funding it.”

The manual was launched with a ceremony at Young Epilepsy’s headquarters. There was a presentation about Signalong and attendees learned signs for tea, coffee and other snacks.
