Baby & Toddler Sign Language





Babies learn to communicate even before they can talk. Babbling sounds, facial expressions, and hand gestures are all forms of communication.

Incorporating American Sign Language into the curriculum (by way of everyday activities) provides babies with yet another way to communicate. Whenever possible, I will use 9 basic signs each month that correlate with the activities that your infant or toddler will be learning about. I will also say the words as I sign them. Consistent use of the signs through meaningful experiences will encourage babies to use them around the 8-10 month stage of development.

Please click on the buttons on the left to see what signs I am going to introduce each month.
