Why Do We Sign? Some Basic Rules
Signing helps the development of spoken language Always say the word as you make the sign
Signing helps the child to pay attention to us Make sure the child is watching
Signing makes us emphasise the key words of our message Allow time for a response
Signing makes us slow down, giving the child more time to process Use appropriate expression and body language
Signing gives a clear visual of what we are talking about Remember to sign the key words
