Canaan Barrie on body sign system
The Canaan Barrie on body sign system is used to communicate with children who have multiple disabilities, as well as visual impairment. The sign system was developed at the Royal Blind School in Edinburgh.
On body signing helps develop a young person’s natural gesture and, in turn, helps them communicate better with their world around them. On body signing also develops and encourages spoken language skills, giving more meaning to individual words.
