Each card showcases carefully crafted affirmations designed to enhance self-confidence, promote a growth mindset, and support emotional wellbeing.

Reflection questions on the back of each card provide additional opportunities for reinforcement and the development of creativity and problem-solving skills.
Please note that the images on the cards provide a general understanding of the handshapes and movements required for signing different affirmations in Auslan.
