One of the most fundamental human desires is to be understood. Baby sign language can give your baby a way to “talk” to you about their needs, wants, and desires in a way that’s proven to accelerate speech development.
Packed full of insightful and helpful information as told from the perspective of an experienced signing parent. The information covered is appropriate for those who have never heard of baby sign language as well as carers that have used baby sign language before and just need a bit of a refresher.
The baby signs demonstrated in this book have been carefully selected for their ease of use, helpfulness to carers and appropriateness for baby's interests and daily routine.
An alphabetical index of baby signs is at the front of the book to make it quick and easy for you to look up a sign.
All signs featured in the book are Auslan (Australian Sign Language) and have been chosen in consultation with members of the Australian Deaf community to ensure the accurateness of each sign. Using the Baby Sign and Learn program, Auslan can become a second language for you and your baby should you choose to pursue it in the future.
Baby signing can provide so many special moment and memories. There really is nothing more special than getting to know your baby. This book is the ideal resource for beginning your rewarding baby signing journey with your little one.
