If you're new to the idea of Baby Sign Language, it is basically a method of using natural and simple signs with babies as a means of early communication before they can talk.
Baby Sign Language started with child development experts
The concept first became well known with the release of Drs. Linda Acredolo & Susan Goodwyn's book "How to Talk to Your Baby before Your Baby Can Talk" ; which is based on their years of research into "Symbolic Gesturing".
Baby Signs Book started baby sign language movement worldwide
Their book started a worldwide baby signing movement and now their baby sign language program Baby Signs ®, is used by thousands of families around the world.
In fact the Directors of Baby Signs Australia are families who have benefited from using the Baby Signs program. These benefits were so significant that they felt compelled to bring the world's best baby signing program to other Australia families.
So how can your family learn to use the program and experience the benefits of the Baby Signs® program like us? There are a couple of options and both of them have been tried and tested for over twenty five years with huge success.
First option is our baby sign langauge product based on Drs. Acredolo & Goodwyn's research, which is a great option for those with no baby signing classes nearby or with limited time to join a class. They have all been writted and developed by Drs. Linda Acredolo & Susan Goodwyn themselves and are exceptional in that they ensure your learning is easy. For those of you, like me, wondering if the products will be filled with technical research jargon will be very surprised to find that infact everything is explained in easy to understand language which shows you step-by-step how to successfully use signs with your baby.
If purchasing products without the input of an instructor isn't for you, then the “Dr Mums” have that covered, and their workshops and classes combined with excellent delivery materials are lots of fun and successful.
Happy signing everyone!
