Hands Together Family Workshop in Singapore Sign Language Visual BannerAbout the Workshop

Are you a hearing parent of Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing kids, or a Deaf parent?

Looking for a welcoming and inclusive space to learn about Deaf culture and Singapore Sign Language (SgSL) — while bonding as a family?

Or perhaps you’re looking to find a support network of fellow parents in the Deaf community?

We’ve planned for this workshop just for you! Come join us for the Hands Together Family Workshop, conducted in SgSL, with SgSL-to-English interpretation available.

This workshop is designed and facilitated by experienced, trained social workers, as well as Deaf youth who are native Deaf signers.
