Goal and desired outcome.

This is achieved by giving training in deafness, communication barriers, dangerous situations and Basic Sign Language. We introduce your staff to the added value of the visual aspect of communication. Our tutors' personal experience combined with active work methods makes the training very practical and tangible for the participants. Also, our products are demonstrated in order to assure safety and enhance the deaf and hard of hearing people's experience.
