Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to see how preschool teachers are working with supportive signs and if it is a working tool for children's language development. Is the supportive signing just for kids with special need for support or can it be good for all children?

I've done the study by interviewing preschool teachers that is working with supportive signs in preschool. I also had a questionnaire for parents that yielded less fruitful results. I have chosen to use children's language and constructivist and socio-cultural theories.

What I came up with is that the supportive signs are very helpful in preschools, but it requires a lot from the one doing it. To work with the supportive signs you need to have the knowledge to make it right for the child who is learning to use signs. As a teacher you need to have a lot of patience and a lot of will to understand the child. If you have it, you can help children with difficulties in finding a way to communicate with others, it can support the child who has not developed his speech to make them understood or a child who has a other mother tongue than the majority can find a way to interact with the others in the group. For the hearing children who developed their speech supportive signs can become a fun element that helps to create a peaceful and harmonious group while they learn to focus on the subscriber.
