Sign Language for Babies
Sign language is a great way to help you communicate with your pre-verbal baby. It helps babies that are ready to communicate, but can’t quite bridge the gap to full speech yet. Imagine how your life would be different if your baby could tell you what he or she is thinking!
Signing with babies has numerous benefits - not to mention, it's a lot of fun and helps you bond with your child. Babies that sign are often less fussy because they're able to communicate what they want in ways other than crying. Research also shows that babies that utilize sign language get a great start in life – with increased vocabularies and more advanced cognitive skills, even years after they have stopped signing.
Our Sign Language for Babies (SLFB): a 6-week interactive series includes:
* An overview of language development
* Over 50 American Sign Language (ASL) signs
* Easy ways to incorporate signing into your daily routine
* Fun songs and activities to facilitate the learning of signs
* Take home reference materials
