Hi. I started teaching myself, my dd (3 1/2 at the time) and ds (baby at the time) some basic ASL signs some 7 years. It helped my little boy (hearing) to communicate FAR earlier with us than if we had waited until he was 2-2.5 years old and could speak. I used a video called Talking Hands from the library (VERY cute for babies-preschoolers!). I also used CD-ROMs and a MI State website with an online dictionary. I used signing in everyday situations and they both caught on easily (individual signs, not ASL as a language).
Well, I am expecting again-due in Sept-and I am absolutely going to keep up the signing (we know hundreds of signs now) and teach them to this little one. I found a new resource a while back that I thought I'd pass on: Browse Signs | ASL Sign Language Video Dictionary
