Abstract: Sign Language (SL) is the natural language of deaf people. SL allows children to explore their surroundings and to acquire reading skills. The chance to learn it by deaf babies and toddlers drastically decreases in an inappropriate environment lacking the means to ensure an early and proper interaction. The difficulty of deaf individuals to develop reading skills within the school context has been extensively researched, but studies focusing on the familiar context in the early stages of life and acknowledging the real potential of the SL are lacking. In this publication a single case study of instrumental type is presented. This allowed the comparison of previous evidence on SL strategies of reading support with the strategies used by a family with a deaf child during a reading session. With the results obtained an evaluation of different strategies of the Catalan Sign Language allowing the adult to effectively interact and support the child reading process, as a previous step to the acquisition of writing skills, is carried out. The main goal of this research is to provide tools to families and SL professionals -deaf or hearing- to enforce reading skills of deaf children based on an early interaction and SL.
