Baby and Toddler Sign and Sing
Baby Signing has been around for about 30-40 years, and has become increasingly popular in the past 10 years.
Baby Signing is a wonderful way to communicate with your baby. It bridges the communication gap, helping babies to show their parents what they want, what they are thinking, or how they are feeling, before they can talk.
Benefits of Baby and Toddler Signing:
Empowers baby to communicate early
Compliments language and speech development
Encourages bonding and interaction
Can help parent understand what baby wants/needs
Parents can learn new rhymes and songs
Teaches the parents a skill too.
Top tips for signing with babies

Keep it simple, one or two signs per sentence

Keep it fun, use songs, rhymes, toys etc
