DEBBIE Cameron Physiotherapy got behind the third annual Talk Sign Day on Friday, 11 March and learnt the South African Sign Language (SASL) signs for this campaign which include - let's meet, let's connect, let's do coffee, let's have fun, friends for life and see you soon. These signs are illustrated and appear on the Talk Sign website page, www.talksign.co.za

Even though Talk Sign Day has been celebrated the Talk Sign campaign continues throughout March.

"March is Human Rights Month and it is a human right for every individual to communicate and be communicated with,'' says Justice Zac Yacoobs, chairman of the KZN Blind & Deaf Society.

During March the society urges South Africans to continue to learn the SASL signs and reach out to someone who is deaf or hard of hearing.
