Granddaughter is 14 months and know thirty words

A score of 5 is not high enough
~ Kathleen17

I look forward to practicing this with my 17 month old grandson. He's late with speaking but has picked this up rapidly.

For some reason I've become dyslexic in my old age with the alphabet signing (Same thing occurs in my aerobics classes)so I have a mirror in place to avoid the initial frustration until the reflex takes over.

Thank you so much

Signing for Babies
~ Alma

I love that this is available. It is so easy. I am replacing English words with Spanish and I love that you could use these cards with any language.

Get start

So well done!
~ annarlo

You're the best, Laura. And it meets such a need. I'm a grandmother to two daughter-in-laws who are signing some with their youngsters. I work on it here with them. It is such fun--and so helpful for the children--and the moms and others--to communicate.

Thank you! Ann

So cool!
~ Courtney2

What a great idea! Laura, thank you for doing all the work so we don't have to. This is the perfect tool also to use because my 9 month old will soon be meeting my mother for the first time, and it'd be great for him to recognize her face when he meets her.

Love the Lesson
