White Paper: Signing with Babies and Children
A comprehensive summary of the academic research on the impact of signing on cognitive, linguistic and social-emotional development
Written by Dr. Claire Vallotton, Michigan State University
Our vision of the world is one in which all children, regardles of their abilities, can express themselves, feel valued and understood, and be supported in achieving their full potential.
My husband and I adopted our three amazing, powerful, capable girls from foster care. your Videos provided such an important bridge to communication with our girls when they were smaller, allowing them to express their Ideas with less frustration, and allowing us to better make ourselves understood.
Now, we have moved to a french speaking country, and we are again using what you taught us as a bridge and support to helping out daughters develop french language oracy. Thank you so much!
I am certain that learning to sign as babies and toddlers helped my daughters learn to read, memorize, and even dance better. I like to joke that signing “turned their brains on”, and perhaps made them more aware of things around them, at an earlier age.
I am so grateful for Rachel Coleman’s work and care to bringing these programs to all families. It made a world of difference in our family and I am so grateful to have had it during those younger years especially. We also enjoy the Potty time and Treeschoolers programs. Keep up the great work! And THANK YOU!!!
You can start signing to your baby as soon as he/she is born
