Our deaf adult lit­er­acy classes are back on for the forth­com­ing aca­demic term. On Tues­day & Thurs­day morn­ing from 11am1pm, we will have QQI Level 2 “Quan­tity and Num­bers & Writ­ing”. Our sin­cere thanks to the Ir­ish Deaf So­ci­ety & the Deaf Adult Lit­er­acy Ser­vice (DALS) for spon­sor­ing these classes. Tu­ition is pro­vided by pro­fes­sional deaf tu­tors so classes are fully ac­ces­si­ble to deaf sign lan­guage users.
