Sign Of The Week: Lámh Sign For Turn

Sign Of The Week: Lámh Sign For Turn

Hi there,

Welcome to the sign of the week.

In this video, you will learn the sign for TURN (as in your turn/my turn).

Turn-taking is an essential skill for language development, social skills, and play skills. Children with special needs often need opportunities to learn turn-taking, so make sure you dedicate time to activities that teach this skill.

Start with simple activities where the child doesn´t have to wait long for his/her turn—for example, rolling a ball back and forth or building a tower of blocks together.

When the child is comfortable doing these with you, you may consider helping your student taking turns with another child.

Using visual supports, such as the sign for turn, will help the child learn this skill.

To make the sign for turn, you will point to the person and then, point to the activity or object.
