Why sign with your Baby?
Welcome to a World of better communication with your baby!
Don't let your pre-verbal child's inability to talk prevent you from effectively communicating. With a few simple signs you can teach your child to tell you what is on his mind, long before he has fine-tuned his verbal skills.
The Baby Signs® Program teaches babies to use simple, easy-to-do gestures for communicating with their parents and caregivers. These gestures or “signs” represent an item or concept, like “cat,” “eat,” or “all gone.”
Babies and toddlers often use signs as a natural part of the communication process. Many babies know how to wave "bye-bye" or use a headshake to mean "no."
But why stop there?
About the Baby Signs® Program
The Baby Signs® Program helps children develop both language and cognitive skills. Studies show that babies who sign actually develop speech sooner and have larger vocabularies when they do start talking.The Baby Signs® Program is based on the groundbreaking research which began an international movement to teach hearing babies to use signs.

In addition to a child's home, the Baby Signs® Program has applications in a variety of other settings, including:
