SIGNING HANDS; GET READY TO SIGN is a 16 page booklet which will enable you to use signing with your baby, toddler or pre-schooler, concentrating on basic needs signs.
Using signs in conjunction with speech, babies can gradually learn to make a connection between sign language and words. Motor skills develop earlier than vocal mechanism, which means babies are able to make gestures many months before they are able to speak.
By introducing just a few simple signs to your child, you enable them to inform you of their needs. This reduces guesswork for everyone, reducing distress and enhancing bonding.
This basic introduction to baby signing has been produced in collaboration with leading BSL expert Cath Smith and experienced baby signing teachers to enable you to start using simple first signs.
