This session will provide an introduction to the Sign with Me program. Sign with Me is an American Sign Language (ASL) curriculum designed to help the entire family to learn to communicate in sign. Based on principles of language development, the series begins with words and phrases appropriate for toddlers. To benefit from the program participants do not need to have knowledge of ASL. It is anticipated that the program outline is able to be adapted for use in Auslan.


The Sign with Me curriculum covers:

  • building conversations, teaching families, educators and other professionals to sign simple, expressive sentences, follow the child's lead in communicating, and the use of facial expressions and body movement
  •  building concepts, which teaches viewers how to use signs to describe feelings, experiences, and concepts and objects
  • positive parenting, which demonstrates how parents can use sign language to discipline in positive ways by praising, handle tantrums, and teach appropriate behaviours.
