Paget Gorman Sign System

The Paget Gorman Sign System was started in the 1930s by Sir Richard Paget who researched and designed the signs. When he died, Lady Paget continued the project with Dr Pierre Gorman until they piloted their new language in 1964 with a group of adult Deaf volunteers. 

The success with this group led them to start using it in schools with deaf children and with children who had learning and speech difficulties.
