These videos are really great Signing Time

Our SP therapist was letting us borrow these DVD's from her. I thought I would post them for anyone interested in getting a sign language video for their little ones. A mom started the series for and with the help of her own daughter, Leah, who is hearing impaired but of course they are for everyone. They are geared toward children but they defintely teach Mom and Dad too.



They are very expensive, I think though....$21 plus S&H but I have found them online (Amazon) in the $17 dollar range. They also have the boxed sets on e-bay.

I think I have seen this series. I don't think $21 is expensive. I would like to get a video at some point but right now I am using free resources.

Thanks for the welcome, grantsmom! My son just turned two and hasn't started talking. He is having his hearing tested tomorrow. He was two months premature and has always been behind so we expected that with his speech as well. I tried signing but he would never pay attention. He finally started waving and blowing kisses so I thought it might be a good time to re-introduce the signs. He has started doing a few (milk and eat). I was so proud when he did the sign for milk the first time. It's like hearing a baby say his/her first word!

While assessing him for speech, the caseworker suggested a hearing test. I don't know why we didn't think about a hearing deficit before. I guess we have been too concerned with his other problems - he has A LOT of medical problems. So, I'm anxious to get the results of the hearing test.

I'll be checking in again soon...

My son was also 2 months premature and will be two next month. It sounds like they have alot in common..... with delays, health problems, and lack of speech. Grant does say Muuum& Daaaaaa but really makes no other real "sounds." That is... none that sound like syllables or vowels.

Grant was having hearing problems also and had PE tubes put in right before his first birthday due to accumulation of fluid behind his ear drums. He couldn't open his euchsatation (sp) tubes.

It is so exciting when the respond and use their signs!! Grant's all time favorite is MORE!!!! Has been forever! But he also uses Milk and Please alot. Can't wait to share more experiences, advice, and friendships!!!

Hey chococat! What do you know, my ds was almost two months premature as well. Actually seven weeks premature. I think it is common for preemise to have delays. I think it is terrific that you have started signing. Brandon has had a hearing test as well. I think it is pretty common for doctors to do hearing tests for speech delays.

Welcome to the board!
