I have been looking around the site and I found a Community called ASL - American Sign Language but I figure since we are Aussie Mums that maybe there was a Community for AUSLAN and there is not so I have started one.
My little girl is not deaf but my husband and I decided when I was pregnant that we would like to teach our little one signing, just for communication while she was unable to talk. It is a fun and interactive way to communicate with your child at the pre-verbal stage.
We have been signing to her since she was 4 months old - only 6 basic signs that we were using everyday - she is now almost 1 year old and knows what we are talking about when we sign but she is yet to sign back. Is anyone else using sign language whether it be for a deaf or hearing child?
