Why wait to communicate?

Talk to your baby and toddler before they even learn to speak!
Wouldn’t it be great to know why your baby is crying? Or why your toddler is upset? Teaching them to sign what they want/feel/need is a wonderful way to help them communicate with you, and boost their IQ and vocabulary!

Research conclusively indicates that babies who sign tend to have a stronger command of verbal language and often begin speaking at an earlier age than babies who do not sign. Countless parents and caregivers have confirmed these findings with their personal experiences and observations. In addition, many Speech-Language professionals, pediatricians, and educators are supporting the use of signs to encourage early language development. Classes are available for babies and young children ages 0 to preschool!

See my son at 6 months old sign a 2 word sentence! Two word sentences usually do not appear until sometime between 17 and 22 months! My now 8 month old signs 2 of them: MORE DADA and MORE MILK and has 9 total signs: more, milk, dada, mama, eat, what, up, waves bye and light, and 3 spoken words: hi, mama, and dada! Signing with your baby and toddler really DOES work!
