As a teen, a bunch of friends and I took a sign language course. I can’t remember much of it now but I know that we could carry on a basic conversation and that we enjoyed it. Not only for the challenge but the ability to talk about the boys behind their backs.
While I was pregnant, I read a lot about Baby Sign Language. I didn’t pursue any classes or workbooks because I figured I had enough on my plate with three babies to look after.
By the time The Kids were ready to communicate, I wasn’t. They were frustrated because they had something to say but didn’t know how to say it. I watched the other Mothers sign with their kids and wished that I had taken a baby sign language class such as Tiny Talkers.
In the end, I taught them a few signs and made up a few more. It was really interesting to see how quickly The Kids picked them up and Artemis remembers a few of them to this day!
Tiny Talkers teaches American Sign Language (ASL). It is our belief that making up your own language as some other baby sign language programs encourage could present problems if you want others to understand your baby’s signs. Many people know American Sign Language including caregivers at daycare centers.
The 2.5 hour webcast allows you to stop, start and rewind at your own leisure all from within the comfort of your own home. In addition, Tiny Talkers is the only sign language webcast that offers personalized email support at no extra charge. You receive all of this and so much more, including downloadable PDFs all for the low fee of $35!
If you are pregnant or have a young child, keep your options open and look into baby sign language. The flexibility and personalized support of Tiny Talkers might be just what you and your baby need.
