Who & What is Voice Thru Your Hands?

Why should I use NZ Sign Language?

Doesn't using Sign Language stop people from talking?

Isn't NZ Sign Language only for the Deaf Community?

Where do I learn more about Visual Communication and NZ Sign Language?


Communication is so important for us all; however for some of us it is more difficult than others.

VTYH is a non-profit charitable trust that nurtures the use of NZSL as a mode of communication.  They demonstrate effective communication by valuing expression and understanding.


These videos have been created to answer these questions and more. It's about building awareness to reaching more families and professionals through these videos. We have also had them translated into NZSL from Seeflow productions.

We would like to thank "the making a difference fund" for making this project a success. Seed group and Seeflow for producing the videos and a special thank you to Dr Anne Toth from Canada who shares her research on the benefits of using sign language within the hearing community.
