Common signs

Baby signs are actions taken from or inspired by ASL (American Sign Language) that can help your children to express themselves. They are not replacements for speaking, but as parents speak the word while signing, children can use their hand muscles to express their needs before their mouths are strong enough to speak.
Did you know babies can move their hands to sign as early as 6 months? And considering that most children don’t begin speaking simple words until 12 months, signing is a way to jump-start their communication.
