Signing Time and Our Journey As a Special Needs Family

by Lisa T. American Sign Language has been an invaluable blessing to my family. Our three-year-old daughter, June, has complex medical needs including a tracheostomy which prevents her from vocalizing. American Sign Language allows June to communicate with us and to acquire a rich, complete language during these vital early years of brain development. Signing Time enabled us to start learning ASL as a family and to share this language with others. When June received a tracheostomy at 2 months old, doctors did not know if or when she would be able to vocalize. At that time, my husband, my …

A Window into His Mind

by Megan McWilliams, Master Signing Time Instructor While on a walk, my 16 month son took interest in an electrical box surrounded by a decorative fence. We were only one house from home, so I was anxious to keep moving. He pointed to and babbled about the box for a while. Since I was unable to convince him to continue walking, I  signed and told him “ELECTRICITY BOX DON’T TOUCH” knowing he had never seen the signs for electricity or box before. He replied by signing back “BED.” The window into his mind was opened up to me through that one …

By Marcia Bruce, Baby Signing Time Instructor Originally posted on Calgary Is Signing, MARCH 18, 2016 REASON 1: Baby signing gives you the gift of communication I’ll start with the main reason baby sign language is so fantastic. It gives you the gift of communication with your little one before she can actually talk. No surprise there, right? This benefit is probably listed on every baby signing site out there – babies have control of their hands and can sign before they master the use of their voices.

Reasons to Continue Signing

From Annette M…..Cedar Park, Texas (Sofia age 2) I am constantly reminded by how blessed our family has been to find Ms. Amy and The Signing Connection, and being introduced to Signing Time, just over two years ago. We originally started classes to learn baby sign language to communicate with our infant. While we have completed the course multiple times throughout our 2+ years we continue coming back for refreshers, and signing has simply become part of our daily life. My toddler has a fairly extensive spoken vocabulary, but when she cannot express the right words she often can sign …
