Many people in recent years have begun to discover the benefits of teaching sign language to young, hearing children. The ability to sign often softens the transition for babies who are too young to be able to speak, but may become easily frustrated when they can’t communicate what they want. Learning to sign has also been proven effective for children with special needs including autism and Down syndrome. For some children, signing is an easier form of communicating than speaking, and gives them more alternatives for expressing themselves. Learning American Sign Language is also a wonderful choice for learning a second language and being able to communicate without fear with those who are part of the deaf community.
Signing Time's DVDs are award-winning, high quality programs designed specifically to teach young children commonly used signs in American Sign Language. The entire Signing Time DVD collection includes more than 26 educational DVDs for children where signs are taught through an entertaining and completely child-friendly format. As early childhood training DVDs for kids, instruction takes place through a multi-sensory approach. Signed words are spoken, spelled out, illustrated, repeated and reinforced through song. Often children have so much fun singing the songs and signing the words that they are unaware that they are learning!
