Trouble Reading? - View This Newsletter Online

Hi everyone, welcome to this months newsletter

I have just arrived back from a wonderful two weeks on Bali and I can tell you that using some basic sign certainly came in handy when dealing with some of the locals to try and communicate in the shops and restaurants :)

This month we are very excited to announce that Baby Hands classes are available for the first time in South Australia. Our newest teacher Avonna has just started in Marion SA. Please contact Avonna for more information on class times and availability.

Your Stories:

"Dear Jackie

Thought I would give you an update on how my daughter Keira is doing with her signing, she is now 28 months and signs on a daily basis, from individual words to small sentences eg "I have more milk please".

She likes to sit with her flash cards and her picture dictionary and point out various pictures and then sign them and if she wants to know a sign she will point to a picture then sign "Sign". She is also a big fan of Playschool and when Sofya (auslan presenter) is on she will come get me and point her out by using the sign for sign.

I am also now signing to my 6 month old daughter Aisling and am sure with help from Keira she will be signing back to us in no time."
