At Meadowbank, Paget Gorman Signed Speech (PGSS) plays an integral part in our childrens' learning.
What is Paget Gorman Signed Speech?
Paget Gorman Signed Speech (PGSS) aims to provide an accurate representation of the English language. Signs are always accompanied by speech, using normal patterns of English and children are encouraged to speak as they sign. The system is an important educational tool for language impaired children because:
P.G.S.S. is not a sign language it is signed speech.
Classes for parents, relatives and carers to learn and practice this key skill are organised on a weekly basis (see pictures below).
