What is baby sign language?

Baby signing involves the use of sign language to communicate with preverbal babies and toddlers with emerging speech skills. It is becoming increasingly popular with hearing babies, as parents are realising that it improves communication with their little ones.

What are the benefits of teaching baby sign language to your child?

A recent study in England, by Drs. Linda Acredolo and Susan Goodwyn (funded by the National Institutes of Child Health and Human Development), found that there is “a clear advantage to using signs with pre-verbal children”.

Parents within the study experienced “reduced frustration” and “stronger bonds with their babies”.

Some of the other advantages for using signing with babies are:

- reduced frustration for babies and carers

- higher IQ

- accelerated speech

- improved memory

- develops baby’s confidence

- boosts language skills and vocabulary building

- provides a strong foundation for early literacy

- creates a fun bonding experience for you and your baby!

When can I start using baby sign language to communicate with my baby?

You can start using baby signs at any age. Most babies, however, begin to take notice of signs at around 6 months of age and may begin using them as early as 7 or 8 months - much earlier than they would be able to communicate verbally.

Why start with just a few signs?

The application and content are designed to cater to babies and toddlers and provide a fundamental set of signs that they will use with you every day. Younger children rely on repetition in their learning process.

How to start signing with your baby?

You can start with only a few signs usually two to three is a good amount especially if you are starting from about 6mths of age. These first signs are based on your child’s needs. For example, if starting from the age of about 6mths your first signs might be ‘Eat’, ‘Milk’ and ‘More’, these basic signs are a part of your child’s everyday living. The important thing is to remember it will take time, so be patient. Encourage and congratulate your child often. Every child learning at an individual pace so keep in mind your ultimate goal is to have fun bonding with your child!

What's New in Version 2.0

Now you can take your own photos and place them on the flash cards. Your baby will enjoy looking at the flash cards which feature objects from around the house and the people they love!

This version also introduces a built in store where you can select new flash cards sets to add to the app as your baby's signing vocabulary increases.

The included (free) set of flash cards now features appropriate regional sign language for American (ASL), British (BSL) and Australian (Auslan) baby signers.

:
Teaches your baby how to pronounce all of their first words incorrectly. I didn't understand why my baby was developing a speech problem and then I realized that it was this app. He was drawn to it because of the baby but unfortunately I had to delete it due to the speech problem. When it says "deer" it says "de ah" and "mia" for "milk" don't understand why anyone would make something like this. Don't buy it unless you want to spend the money for speech therapy later in life!!!!:(
