    ADMIN – Hi Shelly,

    In addition to working with a speech therapist we encourage you to give hime a flashcard set and use it to learn signs as well as an opportunity for him to communicate through pointing.

    People who make up websites such as these, are amazing human beings. I have several books on signing, however the ones on your site are lively and more personable. Also, it’s free. Which shows how much you all care. Wonderful!
