Benefits of signing with your baby
Stop guessing what your baby is trying to tell you and start spending more time fulfilling your child’s specific needs. ASL4Kids Playgroup gives parents the opportunity to communicate with children long before babies can verbalize their wants and needs. Research studies show that signing with babies accelerates language acquisition, reduces frustration and aggressive behavior, and as children mature, results in a greater interest in reading. Out of all the wonderful benefits of baby sign language, the most important benefit of all is that signing will greatly deepen the bond between you and your child.
