    Hi! Is the sign for clothes and for getting dressed the same? Looks the same on the video but wanted to be sure.

    The kids I babysit are 15 months and 9 months Is it too late to teach the 15 month old

    ADMIN- Hi Destaney,
    It is not late at all. Begin by learning the basics and work on teaching both kids two or three signs. You may want to purchase or print a wall chart to help their parents participate in the teaching process.
