our students make changes

Here (people didn’t get my hear/here pun) is a message from one of our students, who is passionate about language rights.

As you know I believed there was a gap in our children’s language learning so I set up Voice Thru Your Hands to bridge this gap. Further to this we as an organisation have teamed up with Deaf Aotearoa to implement NZSL into the school curriculum.

Voice Thru Your Hands is dedicated to raising awareness of the importance of New Zealand Sign Language (NZSL). Also to show through communication in NZSL, people are able to fully express themselves. This proves that it is a given right to all to be able to communicate or at least be given the different options.

Voice Thru Your Hands is also supporting families with children who choose to use New Zealand Sign Language as their mode of communication. We’re a parent-driven, non-profit organisation providing families with the resources, networks, and information they need to improve communication access and educational outcomes for their children. Our outreach programmes, parent/professional collaboration, and advocacy efforts are focused on enabling children to reach their highest potential.
