I’m a huge proponent of baby sign language! I’ve written about it before and the tremendous asset that Signing Time videos are in teaching children to sign in ASL. I started to sign with my girls around 6 months of age. It was wonderful to have that form of communication with them!

Benefits

 

Per Two Little Hands Productions, the benefits of teaching ASL to babies are numerous. Some of the reasons enumerated on their site, reasons that I chose to begin sign language early are as follow:

 

“Teaching your baby sign language can unlock the world around them and give their minds a head start.

 

    • Open a window to your child’s heart & mind

    • Reduce tantrums & increase bonding

    • Build vocabulary & instill confidence

    • Cognitive benefits of being bilingual”
