Bad : Do not use the sign "bad" in association with the child. Use the sign "bad" in association with a viewed behavior. Ex. "bad dog" or "bad apple"
Help Me : Use this sign whenever a child appears to be frustrated by the inability to accomplish a task. Sign "Help Me" and provide assistance. This is a great frustration reducer to use when the child reaches walking age.
No : Use this sign to get his/her attention. You may find that the child responds quicker to the word "no" when it is accompanied by the sign. This is commonly used if the parent/caregiver is on the telephone and unable to verbally reprimand child or in social situations where the parent wants to stop the child but does not want to embarass child in front of others.
No Touch : Use this sign whenever it is unsafe for a child to touch something (ie. light socket, stove, scissors.)
Please : When child requests something, make sign to teach child to ask politely. Note: This sign should not be taught until 15-24 months of age in order not to confuse child with compound requests (ie. "More please")
Share : To play with friends or sisters or brothers
Sorry : If someone got hurt to say that you are sorry
Thank You : When child hands you something that you requested, consistently sign and say "thank you". This teaches the child politeness and the sign will be mastered before the words because the words "thank you" are difficult to produce at an early age.
Yes : Use this sign to tell the child that he/she responded appropriately to task. You may find it just as easy to nod your head rather that using this sign.
