SINCE THE COVID19 PANDEMIC HAS NOT ALLOWED US TO HAVE ANY PHYSICAL GROUP TRAINING IN 2020 AND ALSO PROBABLY WITHIN 2021, WE HAVE DECIDED TO OFFER YOU THE SAFE ALTERNATIVE OPTION TO DO LIVE TRAINING (BESIDES ONLINE TRAINING FOR THE PERIOD OF 30 DAYS WHICH YOU CAN READ MORE OF UNDER ‘ONLINE TRAINING’ ON THE HOME PAGE).

Platforms that are being made use of would either be Zoom or MS Team.

LET’S LOOK AT WHAT THIS ENTAILS –

TINY HANDZ TRAINING

  • Tiny Handz workshops have been presented throughout South Africa, according to need and demand. All signs taught in the workshops are based on South African Sign Language.
  • No knowledge of SA Sign Language is needed for a person to complete our training. During the workshops, training material is also made available that can be used as a reference afterward.
  • In our training, you will be taught how to use SA Sign Language within the special needs spectrum to help both child and adult with speech or language delay. The use of the signs is encouraged to be used with VERBAL language; to be part of the total communication package. Signs are taught within practical categories set out below.
  • We focus mainly on the use of the sign as an assistive tool (next to spoken language, whatever language that may be) to help with language development and to rid some frustration experienced with a lack of communication. We aim to keep training very interactive and great fun, so you do NOT want to miss the opportunity to attend a live session! You also do not need any Sign Language background or training to be taught this amazing skill. You also do not have to be English, Afrikaans or of any other specific spoken language. Sign Language goes along with any language spoken when used as an AAC ;*)
  • 8 CPD points are allocated for professionals attending. Yeah! ;*)
  • Live classes are mainly presented in English but can be used alongside any language.

 

BASIC SASL TRAINING

Live Online Training takes place in the form of 4 sessions of 2 hours each as per the dates set out on the Application form that can be downloaded here. (Note, you only have to choose one group on the form). At this stage, we are only doing BASIC Training on this platform and will consider doing Intermediate around the middle of 2021.

This type of training gives you the freedom to ‘attend’ our training through access to an online platform, where you will also be able to interact with the trainer and other attendees during the training. Such fun! For this reason, your video function will have to remain ON for the duration of the training.

This type of training has the following benefits:

  • You will have live access to the trainer and can ask immediate questions.
  • The training is broken up into 4 sessions of 2 hours each so you will have space and time to digest all that was taught and be ready for the next class on the following day. Two hours go quickly!
  • You can access the course from your office or home as long as you have a computer and internet (and of course a data package of some kind to be able to be part of an online training streaming session).
  • You will be able to practice with other online students as you learn.
  • 8 CPD points are given to professionals registered with the HPCSA or the SACSSP. With that said, remember that ANYONE can attend this training.
  • Around 180 signs are taught in our Basic Training. More than you will find with any other online training companies (if you are lucky to find one ;*)).
