Autism, Failed Hearing Test, and Communication Breakthrough

We appreciate our Signing Time families and we love hearing YOUR stories. We wanted to share this one with YOU! Happy Signing! Thank you for empowering me to communicate more fully with my babies. We started using Signing Time nine years ago when our oldest was 6-months old. It opened the door for understanding each other. By 18-months our son understood, and was using, over 200 signs.

What Is The Funniest Thing Your Child Has Ever Done With Signing?

I started signing with my hearing daughter when she was 6 months old. Originally, my goal was to be able to communicate with her before she could talk. As she grew, signing became so much more than that! She’s now 7 years old and, looking back, I can’t help but think of all the little “moments” that I would have missed if we didn’t have baby sign language! It truly opens up a window into your child’s mind.

Sharing my saddest and happiest days as a mother!

(originally published in The Adoption Constellation Magazine) #birthmother #adoption #reunion#mylaura Shared by Rachel Coleman on Facebook May 12, 2017 Happiness 1992 My first daughter was born on February 12, 1992.

In my next moment alone with my daughter I whispered in her ear, “I relinquished my rights, but I will never relinquish my love.” The following day, I secured her in a car seat. I kissed her, and through torrential tears I said, “good-bye,” then I stopped, turned back to my tiny …

Toddlers use sign language to learn fire safety

Signing Time Instructor Michaela Hoover gives baby sign language classes in the most unusual of places: a firehouse. The goal is twofold: to teach young children simple signs that can help ensure their safety and to introduce them to first responders. Jessica Outland, a parent in the class said, “If something was to happen like an emergency, kids can be really terrified or scared of these first responders. So it just gives them that exposure and teaches them that they’re here to help and protect us and keep us safe.” Read the news article here. Safety Signs Here are a …
