Chloe Loves Sign Language ๐Ÿ˜

Chloe loves to learn sign language.ย  Above she is signing apple and cat.

Happy Monday Everyone ๐Ÿ˜Š

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,ย  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 do๐Ÿ˜

We watch a YouTube channel by Jack Hartman.ย  His video See It Say It Sign It is her favorite. He has many other signing videos as well. We love his channel๐Ÿ˜ 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.ย 

I believe teaching her sign language is important.ย  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.ย 

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.ย 

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day ๐Ÿ˜Š
