The 60 key-word vocabulary enables constructions in both British Sign Language (BSL) and Sign Supported English (SSE) and has been split into 5 colour-coded sets of 6 pairs for easy reference. Rather than a list of words, each set begins with a visual summary page of contents – to see what’s included and to also provide a useful reminder page to go back to and test what you have learned.
Sign language can potentially benefit all children’s progress during the crucial early years of language acquisition when life-long foundations are being laid. This is essential for young children who are deaf or have special educational needs (SEN) in addition to all sign language learners and baby signers. Children with no additional needs can benefit; BSL is proving to be a valuable learning tool for all children and encourages an inclusive environment.
