Children’s key word signing is an Alternative and Augmentative Communication Tool, it is designed to assist pre-verbal/ pre-speaking children to be able communicate before they can speak, as well as for those with unclear speech. In Children’s key word signing both verbal language and signs (kindly borrowed from Australian Sign Language (Auslan)) are used, with only key words being signed. Children’s key word signing has been shown to encourage verbal communication but provides your child with an alternative communication method so they can get their needs and wants met.


Children’s key word sign is a fantastic tool for pre-verbal / pre-speaking children, and is often very useful for neurodiverse children, including (but not limited to) autism, dypraxia, apraxia, Down’s syndrome and ADHD. We encourage that all communication partners have access to children’s key word signing resources, including a child’s peers.


Also available as flashcards.
