For those who have kids that have verbal words, does your child continue to sign the word after they can say it? What words does your child sign and say? Will your child do the sign as they are saying it, or just do one if the other doesn't get your attention?

Rebecca will sign and say ball, book, dog, bread, bow (using the sign for barrette), out (to go outside), down, up, bubble(s), shoes, and I'm sure there are a couple of other things. We're really trying to encourage her to sign & say, but we get a lot more signing than saying out of her, lol. IF she says anything, it's just because she felt like saying the word, not because she's annoyed that we're not responding or anything like that.

Mostly right now, Bella just signs the word. The two that she signs and says are "ball" and "cat"

Jonah no longer signs "ball" now that he says it. But, when he says it, it could mean a few different things. It could mean he sees someone playing a sport, (like the kids playing hockey across the street) or a basketball hoop, or the garage where the balls are LOL

He signs milk and says "Git" when he is thirsty now, but I think because most people don't understand that "git" means milk, he has to keep the sign so they understand what he wants still.

For a while he was signing dog when he was saying "doggie" but he's started signing that a lot less too.

Those are really the only verbal words he has!

My little one, ( 21 months), signs and speaks. SHe has an extensive vocabulary..both with signing and speaking. I think signing has actually helped her vocabulary.

Sarah signs and speaks at the same time. Very rarely will she sign and NOT say the word. I will say that her dad and I sign and speak all the time and even our family and extended family will ask me how to sign (Fill in the blank). She has lots of people who are very supportive of her signing.

It's a good thing she signs and speaks...they are both not perfect and sometimes she'll say something and I have to say to her, "Sign it" and then I understand...sometimes she'll sign it and I'll say, "show me"..because I'm at a loss..LOL

DS (18 months old) signs most of his requests, but lately he has been saying the word at the same. He'll sign "get down" when he's in his high chair, but will also say "down" very loudly if we ignor his request! He'll sign "milk" and say, "ba-ba" at the same time. He'll make the sign for "eat" and say it at the same time. He'll also do the sign for "cracker" as he says it. He hasn't quite mastered the words for the rest of his signs, which are: bath, cookie, cheese, night-night, more, diaper, and all done.
