Auslan Fingerspelling Alphabet Poster

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 1 page | Years: 1 - 6

A poster showing how to represent the letters of the alphabet when fingerspelling a word in Auslan.

Display this poster in your classroom as a reminder of how to represent the letters of the alphabet when fingerspelling nouns and other words in Auslan (Australian Sign Language).

Please note: The viewpoint shown on this poster is from the signer’s perspective looking directly at their hands. The view of the signer and the view of the reciprocant will differ. The images shown aim to give a broad understanding of the handshapes required to communicate letters of the alphabet. Some signs may differ according to area or region. We encourage you to cross-reference using resources within your local community.

      Thanks Stephanie. I run a small local business using the boardmaker program to make and sell resources to parents,. I also do consulting work in local schools. I would love to add Auslan education to my available resources, however am finding it difficult to find illustrations available to use without copyright restrictions. I sell resources laminated, and ready for use for busy parents. Do you have any suggestions as to where I could find these types of resources to sell without restrictions? or doing the wrong thing by using someone else's work! Thanks for your reply. I appreciate your time.
