Key word sign is an augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) tool that provides children that are pre speaking the ability to communicate through signs (kindly borrowed from Auslan), gestures and facial expressions. When key word sign is used by communication partners they must always speak when they sign, only signing the key words of a sentence, to model both spoken language and sign at the same time.
These Communication Boards have been created to promote the use of key word sign during fun activities that are often undertaken by children at home, at early learning services or at school.
