Baby Sign is the use of Auslan signs to support the key (or main) words in what we say. There can be numerous benefits to children learning to sign alongside learning to speak, not the least of which is that a baby's physical skills develop earlier than their oral ones, meaning they have the capacity to produce recognisable sign before they learn to say their first words.
