as a mummy who's bay only speaksin sign and who's current favorite is biscuit I can confirm what the other ladies have said that she is indeed asking for a biscuit in makaton signing! It's surprising how easy they seem to find it to learn

We all are deaf and that sign would indicate biscuit :giggle: My Lo does this all the time although I just give him strawberries instead! :)

i do find it funny that she's been asking for what is probably the last thing she'd ever find in this house... but i feel a tad bad that the poor thing's been hungry. i should have come to you guys at the start of the weekend when she first started it. she was saying a 2-syllable word along with it, but couldn't understand it... so it all fits together.

Aww at least you know what she is saying/signing now, Alesha has never been taught sign but has made about 6 of her own signs up :giggle:

Amelie can sign biscuit & cake both of which we never have in the house but it doesn't stop her asking 10 times a day :hohoho:

I did wonder what sign language Something Special use. I assume it's makaton? Is it very different to BSL. I'll have to learn some of it because she does a couple of signs that I don't have a clue what they are
