We want to use this study to create an understanding of how signs to support the language and sign as alternative and complementing communication may affect children with language difficulties in their peer socialization and how these children express themselves in the communicative process. Signs to support the language and sign as alternative and complementing communication are both forms of communication that are used as support for the speech in which the bearing words in the content is subscribed. Peer socialization among children in preschool has a central role and importance in the child's everyday life in early childhood education. To investigate this process, we used qualitative observations, interviews and focus group where two nursery schools participated. The results showed that majority of the children with language difficulties, without any communication support structure, can not participate in a peer socialization. The observations made showed that children with language impairments have difficulty communicating with other children when they do not have a customary language or knowledge of how to make contact and ask if they can join in the game. We believe that this would be improved if children were given the opportunity to get more language support through signs and spoken language and that teachers support children with language difficulties in play situations and give them the tools to peer socialize themselves. It's not just about language but also about being able to communicate with the whole body, the senses and creating a social capacity to understand other people. We also believe that the use of signs to all the children regardless of ability to generate more opportunities for interaction between all children. This would in turn lead to that all children are included and developed into a preschool for all.
