    I know this is for babies learning how to sign, but this is also a great way for people that are older to learn as well. My girlfriend is deaf and this is helping me a lot to learn asl and I just want to thank you guys for your help

    I did this sign with my 21 month old son tonight when I put him to bed. He responded the same way except he pointed back at me with both index fingers. It was a great moment.

    Angela Brackhahn – We are just teaching our 14mth old ‘help’ and she does a similar thing when she is signing ‘help’. She entwines her fingers and can’t quite get her thumb up yet. ?could be what it was?

    I have a 15 months son that has down syndrome. I am trying to learn how to commutate with him. He seems to enjoy learning how to commutate doing sign language. We only been trying this for a few days.

    It seems the sign for I LOVE YOU in the BLS Dictionary that came with my kit looks different than what is being demonstrated in your on-line dictionary. I am curious to know how to gesture the one that is in the book-do you have that sample available anywhere? Thank you!

    ADMIN – Hi Davis,

    Yes, like all language there are multiple ways to communicate something in American Sign Language. There are a couple of variations for I love you, and we have added a second variation in the second video above. Thanks for the suggestion.

    My 20 months old grandson is learning some sign language at school. Yesterday, Christmas day, I was holding my little 9 months old granddaughter. He came to me with his hands clasped, fingers entwined, fingers down and was trying to tell me something. His parents didn’t know what it meant. I figured he didn’t want me holding his cousin. Could someone tell me what it means? He did it about 5 times. Thank you!!!!

    ADMIN – Hi Angela,

    Great to hear your grandson is learning to sign in school. That doesn’t sound like any sign we know. Ask his teachers, his school may be teaching non-ASL signs (or may have taught hand actions that go along to a song), or he might have just been playing with his hands.
