"SALT helping overcome communication difficulties"

(as a staff member posting for a carer/relative),

Thank you so very much for the signing book that you made, it really represents how she communicates using her own signs.The person is very unique regarding her communication making it difficult for her to engage with people who don't know her well. We feel the book will really benefit both the person and staff to understand her signs and how they can best communicate with her.

God bless you for all your help.
