Unfortunately I'm still a little skeptical of whether or not this works. anyone like to share success stories? how old was your child when you started?

My son does not sign but there is a girl in his Little Gym class that does sign. She can sign more, please, thank you and I think a few others. She is 14 months. I've heard you are supposed to start around 7-8 months old because that's when they soak everything in

My twins are a little behind in talking. Maxx started Childhood Development Watch and they recommended signing when he was 18 months old to cut back on his frustrations of not being able to communicate. We only did a couple of signs but it did work and stopped some of his fits. When we taught him a sign we always said the word along with the sign and eventually he started picking up on the words.

Which part are you skeptical of? My daughter had over 200 signs by her second birthday. Perhaps if you let us know which part you had concerns about, we could help answer your questions.

I love the idea of signing...... I meant to with my second born but still haven't gotten around to it

Does it stunt their speech at all??

Studies have shown that signing does not slow speech. In fact, in some cases it accelerates it as the child is able to be rewarded early for using a combination of speech and sign to communicate. (Plus, IQ scores are showing higher as well. Although not a reason to sign, it is an indicator that it isn't detrimental at all.)

HTH,
Nicole

it is never to late to start. kids pick things up so fast. you can probably go to your local library and find books on basic signing or even signing with your baby. there are also videos for child signing. there is all sorts of information.

It's never too late. If nothing else, you'll be exposing them to a second language. Go for it!

There was a little boy that went to church with them that he didn't talk until he was 3 and he signed all the time.

Thanks!
