Baby Signing Myth #5: You have to learn a whole new language (BUSTED!)

MYTH: Signing means learning a whole new language. Excerpt from SuperBaby: 12 Ways to Give Your Child a Head Start in the First 3 Years You don’t have to learn a complete language in order to begin signing with your child. You only have to know the signs that are valuable to you and your baby. Ideally you should be at least one step ahead of your child, although many adults learn the signs along with their children. You will be amazed how quickly you increase your own signing vocabulary just by looking up each of the signs as you become curious …

Baby Signing Time features top words 2-year olds should say

In a recent article on Parents.com, Richard Rende, Ph.D. shared a list of 25 words that a typical 2-year-old should be saying. Baby Signing Time DVDs and Baby Signing Time Board Books can give your child exposure to many of these important early words. How does signing support spoken language? In the white paper “Signing with Babies and Children,” Dr. Claire Vallotton of Michigan State University summarizes what research can tell us about the link between signing and talking: “In one case study, each time the child learned the sign for a certain concept, the word followed shortly after it, from the time the child was 8 …

Baby Signing Myth #4: ASL signs are too hard for babies (BUSTED!)

MYTH: ASL is too complicated for babies. Excerpt from SuperBaby: 12 Ways to Give Your Child a Head Start in the First 3 Years Whenever I speak to my toddlers, Mendez and Quincy, I use real words so I can provide an accurate model, even though I know they are not yet able to reproduce the sounds I’m making. As children get more speaking experience, they refine their speech and become more capable of accurately pronouncing words. It is a bad idea to invent words to take the place of complex words your child can’t pronounce yet. If he can’t say the …

Baby Signing Myth #3: Signing is just for parents trying to raise a genius (BUSTED!)

MYTH: Signing is something only type-A parents who are trying to raise a genius baby would do.  Excerpt from SuperBaby: 12 Ways to Give Your Child a Head Start in the First 3 Years I think Dr. Alan Greene said it best: “teaching your baby sign language is not about power-parenting, it’s another loving way to interact. Signing can potentially increase your child’s IQ, vocabulary, and reading ability, but the most important thing about it is that it opens the door to communication for your child much earlier than it would happen otherwise, allowing you and your child to get closer. This …

Baby Signing Myth #2: Signing takes a lot of time and money (BUSTED!)

Myth: Signing is expensive and time-consuming Excerpt from SuperBaby: 12 Ways to Give Your Child a Head Start in the First 3 Years  Signing does not take a lot of time or cost a bundle. The amount of time you devote to signing and the degree to which you integrate it into your family’s life is completely up to you. Granted, the more you do, the more likely you are to see results. I have seen families who use only three signs benefit from the experience. As far as the financial commitment goes, it can be as little as the cost of one paperback book. …

Baby Signing Myth #1: Signing delays speech (BUSTED!)

Myth: Sign language will delay spoken language Excerpt from SuperBaby: 12 Ways to Give Your Child a Head Start in the First 3 Years  Because sign encourages early communication, increases vocabulary, reduces frustration, and expands expressive language, most speech experts are in favor of introducing sign to babies. According to Dr. Marilyn Agin, Lisa Geng, and Malcolm Nicholl, authors of The Late Talker, “Research indicates that signing is a stepping stone–and a very important one–on the way to speech. As the child’s ability to vocalize increases, signing falls by the way side. The signs are not an alternative to speech, but a …
