    Do you guys have a sister site or an affiliation that can teach phrases? My toddler is a lazy talker and refuses to use words, so I’m hoping sign language will help her communicate better instead of standing there and just making caveman noises lol, half the time I don’t know what she wants bc it’s the same noise for just about everything. So I’m trying to learn more than what I’m teaching her so that I’m ahead of her and can teach her what she’s ready to learn, when she’s ready to learn it, but there’s some phrases that I can’t find anywhere.

    ADMIN – Hi Kris,

    We don’t. If your child has language delays it is best to consult with a speech therapist.
