Information About Baby Sign Language for Parents
Welcome to the Australian Baby Hands Information for Parents Page.
Baby Sign Language is the use of basic signs to help bridge the gap of communication for pre-verbal children.
Use of these basic gestures can help your child to let you know what it is that they want or what they are thinking long before they develop the ability to speak.
The reason why many nursery rhymes such as Twinkle Twinkle little star are so popular with children are the actions that are used which help the child to understand what the song is about.
Using baby sign is just a natural progression of the use of sign to allow your child to communicate further.
Australian Baby Hands was developed to create baby sign language resources for parents, families and child care workers using Auslan (Australian sign language) and is currently the only accredited baby sign language company in Australia.
