As Long As You're Aware....

If you are looking to learn Signed English, the language taught in signing schools for the Deaf, and converse with a deaf child, this is a wonderful book. It has great illustrations and is very easy to sort through. As long as you are aware that the signs in this book are NOT signs that ADULT deaf people use, you're OK. Don't get Signed English and American Sign Language confused. But, again, if you want English signs for a child, this book is well worth the money. :o)

Great Sign Language Dictionary /Reference

I borrowed my speech therapist's copy for my son who is 2 1/2 years old and is delay due to early hearing lost from fluid. His hearing improved since the tubes but is still not speaking. My doctor strongly recommended sign language about a year ago. It seem like a big task for us, we knew nothing about sign language. I went to the book store and got "Baby Signs" with the video. It helped us get started but as we went on there are vocabulary that are not in the introductory literature. When we borrowed "Signing" from our therapist, it was a great resource. I refer to it all the time and have been holding onto it for about a year now. I finally decided that I should get my own copy as the therapist is leaving us in August when my son turn 3. I turn to the index more often than reading through the pages. The index has the sign-words in alphabetic order. I sometimes look throught the category just to learn new signs.For the parents who is researching for their child, my son learned to sign in 3 months last year. His first sign, as expected is "more". He has a 20 words or so vocabulary in signs. So be patient and your child will get it sooner or later.

This book is good if you like to learn by categories.

I have owned this book for several years and use it as a classroom teacher. When my students and I want to learn new vocabulary about a subject, like animals, this book is nice because it groups terms into topics. The index in the back also allows you to quickly find a word.
