Learn Sign videos

Starting Out with NZSL

These videos are for parents, whānau, friends and teachers who want to start learning New Zealand Sign Language (NZSL) to communicate with children 0-5years old.

Each video shows the first signs and skills needed to communicate with children in the early years.

Using NZSL with your baby or toddler can increase your child’s ability to communicate their needs, desires, and feelings. Signing with babies and toddlers is fun and can involve creative and visual dramatic play. Pre-schoolers can learn signs quickly through everyday communication at home.
