This class identifies signs that can be used with infants, discusses when to teach them these signs, and discusses the many benefits of using sign language with infants.
Use signs in the context of daily routines to support vocal communications.
Nouns are the first words that infants use. Babies are curious and want to know what things are. They often point to things in their environment. This is a good opportunity to introduce a sign.
Infants develop at their own rate; therefore, it is not beneficial to compare one infant’s ability to use sign language to another’s.
