About Us

BabySignLanguage.com is a project for parents teaching infants and toddlers early communication skills. We believe that early communication sets the foundation for accelerated learning, reduced frustration, and a closer relationship between parent and child.

Our website contains baby sign language resources designed around the pedagogical needs of infants and toddlers. In everything we do we take into account the daily challenges confronted by new parents as they attempt to equip their babies with the tools to thrive.

This site was founded when we started teaching our own children how to sign. Our kids loved signing and we loved being able to share in their lives. After hundreds of shared secrets and averted tantrums we can’t understand how any parent could live without Baby Sign Language. We told everyone, and so our friends laid down the challenge, “why don’t you teach every parent Baby Sign Language?

We are constantly evolving and appreciate all feedback. We want to be a resource for every parent who wants to start communicating with their pre-verbal child through sign language. So send us your questions, comments, and concerns. We love hearing from you!

    This is such a wonderful website to learn sign language. My baby is 7 1/2 months atm, hubby and I are starting to learn and teach her sign. Really excited to see how she will go and when she starts signing us back.

    Thank you for the videos!

    I would like to use your images for the yes and no signs in my college course presentation on receptive and expressive language supports in early childhood education. If I include the copyright information and cite the website, would you be okay with me using it? Is there a designer I should give credit to as well?
    Thank you,

    ADMIN – Hi Tonni,

    You are welcome to use our images as long as your initiative is not for profit and you include a mention of our website in tandem with the image.


    I love your baby signing page, it has loads of useful information . I’m training to be a baby sign teacher and have found some great references on your website, thanks.
    I need to cite your website if you don’t mind but good publicity for your page. Can you tell me the date and year your page was set up.

    Many thanks June

    Hi! I was wondering what research there is to back up your claims! I love the idea of baby sign language and I’d like to cite your research in my upcoming presentation in class about the benefits of teaching baby sign language to prelingual infants!

    ADMIN – Hi Becca,
