Signing Smart: Beginner (0-2 yrs.) W18

Signing Smart™: Beginner (Birth - 2 yrs.)

Signing Smart. strategies integrate

more than 150 American Sign Language

signs into songs, games and activities

developed to engage very young

children and their parents. Research

has shown that using American Sign

Language with hearing babies and

toddlers allows communication and

spoken language to happen earlier and

faster, while reducing frustration and

tantrums. Most children have two to

three words by 12 months, whereas

Signing Smart™ children typically have

25 signs and 16 words! Most children

start combining words into two-word

sentences by 20 months, whereas

Signing Smart™ children typically do

this by 11-14 months and some as early

as six months! The National Institute of

Health even found a 12-point IQ increase

for eight year-olds who used signs as

young children. More research, class

pictures and family quotes at www.

SigningSmart.com. A non-refundable

$40 home materials includes Signing

Smart™ for Early Communication,

Signing Smart. Video Glossary and The

Treasure Chest: Vol. 1 children’s video.
