The 26 letters of the alphabet, one letter per page with picture, sign with written description and the fingerspelled letter plain and simple.
Ideal for deaf children and children with additional speech and language needs and their families learning Australian Sign Language (Auslan ) together. Designed to promote essential early learning for young children.
The contents within represent the most commonly used versions of signs but signs do have regional variations, so please check with your local Auslan community for local usage. Face to face contact with native sign language users is recommended as the best way to learn and the Let’s Sign resources as detailed at the back of this book are designed to support this.
Australian Sign Language (Auslan) and New Zealand Sign Language (NZSL) are the sign languages of the deaf communities of Australia and New Zealand. Both have evolved from forms of British Sign Language (BSL) and together the three languages comprise the BANZSL language family.
They share many of the same vocabulary items and structural
features in addition to the use of the same two-handed alphabet. This book includes: Handshape Key and BANZSL Fingerspelling
Alphabets for left and right-handed signers. Fingerspelling is an
important and integrated part of Auslan and the letters of the
alphabet help to provide a direct link to literacy.
