Core Values

We believe that everyone has the potential to become sign bilingual, and by using both signed and spoken language, it could improve the development of individuals.
We encourage deaf-hearing collaborations to promote deaf awareness and develop mutual understanding as to create an inclusive society. We also provide trainings for deaf people to enable them to utilise their experience and knowledge of sign language to support other groups in need, and to promote deaf-hearing collaboration in different projects.
We think ahead to cater to the needs of children and parents.
We serve, but we also learn, as professional enhancement is necessary to improve service quality.
We keep in contact with local and overseas academics as knowledge transfer can help improve our programmes.
