So what is baby sign language?
Essentially, it’s teaching families how to use vocabulary from American Sign Language (ASL) with their babies so their little ones can learn to express themselves before they have developed speech.
Did you know... that infants can be taught to tell you when they are hungry, sleepy or in need of a diaper change by using simple signs? Imagine how much easier it is to raise or teach a baby who can communicate their wants and needs to you, instead of guessing what their tears or tantrums may mean! And best of all, baby sign language is easy to learn and the rewards are fantastic.
In addition to being able to communicate more effectively with your baby, research shows that babies who have learned baby sign language have better social and language skills as well as increased fine motor skills among other wonderful benefits. Most importantly, it improves communication and bonding between parent and child.
You will be amazed at how much your child has to say –or sign- to you when you introduce baby sign language into your home or school!
