Auslan (Australian Sign Language) Children's Picture Dictionaries

Now there is a range of dictionaries to help Children (and their parents and teachers) learn Auslan (Australian Sign Language) with little or no reading.

These books are designed to help you learn signs on a topic and then use those signs in your daily life. For example, use the 'Fruit and Vegetable' category in Volume 1 to learn the signs and then practice them during fruit break at school or when preparing dinner at home.

Who are these dictionaries for?
These dictionaries have been especially designed to help children learning Auslan as a LOTE (Language Other Than English) at school, as their first language, or to communicate with friends or relatives. They are also very popular with parents, carers and teachers. Volume 1 and 2 do not require reading, with page numbers also being able to be navigated pictorially. Due to the increased complexity of material covered, Volume 3 does require some reading.
The series aims to gently guide children through vocabulary building to sentence development and eventually structured conversation, with each volume increasing in complexity.

There are 3 volumes

Auslan Children's Picture Dictionary, Volume 1, 3rd Edition

The winner of the most popular sign language product for 2009 was the Auslan Children's Picture Dictionary, Volume 1 An innovative book released in 2007 which quickly taken Australia by storm.

It is the first dictionary of its kind. It does not require the user to have any ability to read what so ever! Every sign includes a pictorial representation of the object, as well as the English word (to help encourage English literacy) and a description of how to perform the sign (which is most beneficial for teachers and parents). Signs are also represented not in English word order but under categories. A system that makes more sense to a deaf student and has revolutionised their ability to look up English words in the classroom.

It is no surprise then that the book has been so readily adopted in classrooms and homes across the country and won this most prestigious award.

This is the new 2013 edition of the very popular first volume in the children's picture dictionary series. It includes descriptions and now includes 480 signs (up from 300 last edition).
