Keyword signing resources

In this section, Massiel will introduce you to the benefits of keyword signing and explain how it works. Other pages will show Massiel demonstrating how to keyword sign each page of our favourite books.


We will be using keyword signing in this project. Keyword signing uses Auslan signs. Auslan is the native language of the Australian Deaf community (Australian Sign Language).

Keyword signing uses a core vocabulary of selected words considered to be the most appropriate for children and adults often used as a way to support with communication and language difficulties.

In this project, we gratefully acknowledge the Deaf community for the use of Auslan signs.
