This is a fabulous resource! I have a non-verbal student and I have been having some success with teaching him to use simple Auslan signs to communicate his needs. This will help me extend the communication to the rest of the class too. I have one request though- could you please add a card for ‘toilet’? Or create a similar pack for signs for wants/needs? 🙂
