Chloe loves to learn sign language. Above she is signing apple and cat.
Happy Monday Everyone 😊
When Chloe was a baby I started teaching her simple signs. She had a severe speech delay and screamed a lot when she wanted or needed something. It was tough!
As Chloe started gaining speech, mostly echolalia, she still used some signs to communicate. If she is playing and I tell her it’s time to do something else she will say and sign play. She is really working hard to learn to sign the alphabet. She knows them better than I do😁
We watch a YouTube channel by Jack Hartman. His video See It Say It Sign It is her favorite. He has many other signing videos as well. We love his channel😍 We checked out Baby Signing Time videos from the library a few years ago, but she didn’t like them. Right now we are working on letters, animals, food and feelings.
I believe teaching her sign language is important. She has trouble expressing her wants and needs when upset. I also love learning with her. Many afternoons, like right now as I’m typing this, we practice our signs. I think it is important for everyone to know basic signs.
Have you ever taught your young children to use sign language before they could speak? Do you have a non verbal child who communicates with signing? Share below in the comments.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day 😊
