Sign language is one of the many ways in which adults can engage babies and young toddlers on their paths to learning language. Sign language is unique because, when paired with words, it makes language learning a multisensory experience. Signing comes naturally to babies and toddlers, and it comes with a host of other benefits as well.

8 reasons why every baby should learn sign language:

  1. Signing allows baby to engage as an active participant in the learning environment.
  2. Using signs can reduce or eliminate baby’s frustration at not being able to communicate.
  3. Signing makes learning to speak even easier.
  4. Learning to sign stimulates intellectual development.
  5. Success with signing nurtures baby’s self-esteem and self-confidence.
  6. Since signing often requires eye contact, it helps children focus, an important skill in cultures in which children are often overloaded with various stimuli.
  7. Signing strengthens the bond between parent and child.
  8. Using sign language empowers parents because they know they are providing their children with an invaluable additional communication tool.
