International Week of the Deaf & International Day of Sign Languages

Did you know International Week of the Deaf has been taking place this week from the 23rd- 30th of September. This year’s theme is “With Sign Language, Everyone is Included”.

In addition, International Day of Sign Languages (IDSL) has been adopted by the United Nations General Assembly and will be celebrated annually on 23 September from 2018 onwards. The objective of IDSL is to raise awareness on sign languages and strengthen the status about sign languages.


These events are supported by the World Federation of the Deaf (WFD). In Ireland, the representative body is the Irish Deaf Society (IDS).
