Sarah learned her first 10 signs at six month and it made our lives much easier. Instead of screaming, she could tell us when she was hungry, thirsty, or tired. She learned another 50 signs by nine months and that was a blast. Now she is talking much earlier than the other children in her preschool and we think it is because of her signing.

We can’t imagine missing out on all the little things she shared with baby sign language. Thank You!

I was thrilled to see how easy the signs were for Abigail (3) and Eden (21 months). Much to my surprise they could figure out many of the signs from the flashcards on their own.

Everyone thought I was nuts when I started. A month later, all my friends saw Michelle’s first signs. Then they wanted to know how they could start.

Michelle is talking now and doesn’t sign much anymore, but it gave her a headstart over other children her age. Everyone says she talks like a three year old. Now she is helping me teach her baby brother Jordan how to sign.

    I started using the baby sign language website to sign with my baby around 1 month. The first sign she learned was milk, around 6 months, and it was so great to know when she was ready for a bottle! Baby sign language has made our lives so much EASIER! She signs to us when she is hungry or thirsty, or when she wants her stuffed duck. She also uses signing to request different snacks (her favorite two signs are cookie and fish, for a goldfish cracker) and to point out things around her. Her daddy was so excited this week because he was watching a horse show on television and she walked into the room and signed horse. I would recommend Baby Sign Language to any parent! You don’t have to be extreme with it, just teaching a few signs will really reduce frustration for you and your child! But I really think once you will get started, you will be hooked like we are!! The only thing I would like more is if the hard copy dictionary provided written descriptions of the signs like the website does. Sometimes it’s a little difficult to know what you should do just from looking at the pictures. Thank you for providing this WONDERFUL service for our family!
    Admin:

    Mary,
    We have a large collection of picture cards that you may download at no cost. We have several friends dealing with developmental delays that use our materials

  4. Mary

    Does anyone know if there has been any adaptation of sign language or baby sign to include developmentally delayed like the Makaton system used in the UK and NZ. Have a pending grand-daughter who whill have Cri Du Chat which involves delayed/limited expressive verbalization but can understand more than able to express. Makaton system in UK uses sign language as well as picture cards to improve communication skills.
