You’re sitting with your baby, and out of the blue your child starts crying. Even though your child can’t talk yet, you start asking questions, as if your son or daughter can give you an answer. “Are you hungry?” “Did you hurt yourself?” “Does your tummy bother you?”
Imagine how surprised you’d be if your baby actually answered. For many parents, it’s not surprising at all. It’s just baby sign language in action. With programs like Baby Signs®, more and more parents are using sign language as a tool to help toddlers and young children express themselves and communicate with others before they can speak clearly.
