Communicate clearly with your baby with sign language!



Babies that can sign easily express their wants and needs

According to Diane Ryan, founder of KinderSigns Program, babies who use sign language are less frustrated than babies that do not use sign language, since signing babies have a way of expressing their wants and needs.
