NZSL: a language we can all use

Don't wait until you have a Deaf student in your class or school to introduce yourself or your students to New Zealand Sign Language or NZSL. Learn NZSL together so you can:

  • introduce yourselves to a user of NZSL in your community
  • support communication options in the classroom.

Take a look at how NZSL has been introduced into Glen Eden Intermediate school.

Providing alternative representations of auditory information is one of the UDL checkpoints. It's aligned with the principle of providing multiple representations to support understanding.

In Meghan's story above, she tells us about how many of her classmates have learned NZSL. If you are using NZSL in your classroom, we'd love to here your stories. 

Here's another example from Howick Intermediate School.
