If you want to start learning South African Sign Language in Cape Town in 2016 – the SLED team will be teaching a beginners course in the week of 18 January 2016 at UCT Summer School.
Please join us for the Annual General Meeting of
Sign Language Education and Development
Kirsty Maclons and the SLED team will be offering a beginners SASL workshop at the UCT Summer School in January 2015.
With South African Sign Language, our Deaf children can reach for their dreams. Investing in SASL is investing in the rich diversity of gifts we have as South Africans, and making sure no ones valuable contribution is lost.
Free 67 SASL Lesson on 17 July 2015 in Johannesburg!
The three day FULL TIME workshop will give participants an INTENSIVE experience of South African Sign Language and Deaf culture. The course is suitable for people who are new to SASL, parents and family members of Deaf children, those who are in contact with Deaf clients in their work place, and those wanting to explore South African Sign Language as part of a possible future career.
The SLED team has produced the first round of exiting new learning and teaching materials (LTSMs) for use in schools for Deaf children for the implementation of the new SASL CAPS curriculum.
In 2015 public classes in Johannesburg will take a different format!

September is The National Month of Deaf People and the theme for 2013 is Equality. South African Sign Language or SASL is probably our oldest indigenous language. It is also the most natural language for a Deaf child. It has become widely recognised and we now
have a SASL curriculum for Deaf children.
