Signing Smart™: Beginner (0-2 yrs.)

Signing Smart®: Beginner!


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(R) 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.
