> 
> Dear friends and colleagues
> Some of you will have heard from Nova publishers already - but I wanted to let you all know personally, because you've all been a big part of my life and the story of this publication.
> 
> As (most of you) know, sign language has been a passion of mine since working for Makaton in the 1980s and having the immense privilege (thanks to Makaton) of attending the first international conferences and witnessing the explosion of interest in this topic - then when working as a speech therapist, finding that children with intellectual impairments, exposed to key word sign, seemed to be treating the medium creatively, rather like the deaf youngsters growing up in oral environments. This led me to a phd at the Institute of Education (thanks again to Jean, Julie, Klaus, Juliet - and colleagues at the university for your support and friendship!). 
> 
> So for some years I have been thinking that a) the field of AAC is totally dominated by aided systems b) all the research on sign language and key word sign, which is still the most commonly used way of augmenting speech,is only available in papers and chapters, and that we needed a book that drew all the threads together. I put a draft together and sent it out to several publishers with no luck (Wiley were "not publishing any more books about communication"! excuse me while I choke... Paul Brookes had quite enough texts on AAC thank you). Nova however got in touch to ask if I had a book I wanted publishing... and the result is now imminent.
> 
> Kaisa Launonen (co-editor, we met doing our Phds on signing and developmental disabilities) and I managed to persuade 30 authors, from international backgrounds in both sign langauge and in AAC to contribute. This is a first - the two fields have evolved in parallel over the last 30 years, despite some crossover in the beginning (John Bonvillian, an early sign up to our stable did fantastic work... he sadly died just after submitting his chapter in 2018, and the book is dedicated to him). We are incredibly grateful to Professor Richard Meier who has written us a chapter on sign language milestones (basic if you want to look at development: what speech therapist does NOT know milestones for speech when assessing children's language development?) and to Laura Sparaci, Francesca Lasorsa and Olga Capirci, who likewise stepped up to write us a chapter on gesture. 
> 
> Some of the features of this book that are really new in the field and of which we are particularly proud are:
> 
> the experience of a young woman with Down syndrome who has signed since she was 3 (and she did the cover artwork!)
> cultural issues in the implementation of key word sign
> pragmatics of key word signing - discourse and conversation
> sign language impairments in deaf children
> a chapter on Llandau Kleffner syndrome
> 
> Attached is a flyer for the book. As is sadly the case with most academic publications it is expensive... but we have a limited time discount.  
> Kaisa and I would be so grateful if you could disseminate the information. It's not about us... it's about this wonderful medium of communication and what we can learn from the children and young people who adopt it as their main or augmentative language. These kids are so marginalised - in whatever field we are discussing.
> 
> So - we recognise you may not be able to buy it for yourselves (eye watering price, we are in discussion with Nova on the subject!!!) but we feel it IS a book that is needed in university libraries - so if you can request it or add it to your reading lists, we hope very much you will do so.
> 
> I'm trying to organise a book launch for the autumn... will let you know!
> 
> 
> if you have stayed with me this far.. thank you!
> with kindest regards
