Do the Baby Signing Classes include parents and babies?
Parents and baby come to the class. Sometimes both Mom and Dad come in and sometimes just the Mom. They don't have to bring a baby if they choose not to. Sometimes even have grandparents bring in a baby.


Is it too late to start if my baby is already saying some words?

Why is baby signing important?

  1. Signing gives a baby a way to communicate their wants, needs
    and interests before they can speak.
  2. Signing reduces frustration.
  3. Signing increases a child’s vocabulary.
  4. Signing allows babies to share their world with you.

When should I start Babies Can Sign program & when should I see results?

  • If you start when a baby is 6-8 months old, they could start signing back when they are 8-10 months old.
  • If you start when a baby is 8-12 months old, a baby could start signing back in 4-8 weeks.
  • As babies develop at their own pace, they will also sign at their own pace. The best time to begin is when you feel ready to start.
