    This site is amazing. It helped me with my picky three year old , who wants to fill up on juice and milk instead of just eating food. It gets frustrating sometimes but they had some helpful hints. Thanks

    I love this site. It is so informative and easy to use.
    I have known how to sign for several years, but I take care of a 3 yr old and a 15 month old. The3 yr old likes to watch the videos and look at the pictures and has learned several signs. The 15 month old is nonverbal. I have been teaching her signs to help with her communication skills. She has learned to sign eat, drink, milk, please with just a few times of showing her and has started to make some sounds like mmm

    Isabella is 15 months.
    She watches your videos 2-3 times and mimic’s your signs.
    She knows 11 different signs and also says the words as she shows the sign.
    Great site. Thank you

    This site is amazing!! I have a ten-month-old who has a tantrum sometimes, and it’s difficult to understand what he wants. I’m going to teach him a few words tomorrow. This site is very informative! Thanks so much for sharing!! :)

    We purchased the deluxe kit a week ago and are very excited to receive it. My wife and I have been practicing the basics through the site for a few days and cannot wait to start working with our six month old son who is moderate to severe HOH and is using hearing aids now. Thanks so much!

    I really like this site. We found out we have to learn sign-language for our great-granddaughter. I’m just sorry we cant afford the kit right now. Your site is very informative and we have learned quite a bit from it. Thank you
