Baby Signs!

One of the tremendously fun things about working with toddlers and preschoolers is teaching them to say their first words! Last spring I took a class called Baby Signs: Sign Language for Babies. The concept is that teaching kids sign language while they are also learning speech provides these babes a way to communicate with others, even when they are not ready to do so verbally. Of course, as a Speech and Language Pathologist, I was interested in using baby signs with my speech delayed and hard of hearing or deaf students, but there are advantages to using sign language with all babies!

  1. I've seen babies using it and it's pretty amazing.
