Sign - Early Years
by Cath Smith and Sandra Teasdale
This straightforward guide starts with the basic principles of signing - the best way to use it, the main hand shapes, finger spelling and the importance of facial expression and body language. It then moves on to introduce a range of British Sign Language vocabulary suitable for very young children. The instructions and accompanying drawings are very easy-to-follow and the signs themselves are easy to remember. This is an excellent introduction to signing for parents, relatives and friends of hearing-impaired children as well as their teachers and carers. It is also suitable for anyone who wants to use signing with babies or with other children who are slow to develop spoken language.
