There are plenty of benefits to teaching your baby sign language.
  • Babies love to connect with their parents and sign language is just one more way to connect.
  • Some babies (like my son) learn to talk super late. It's very frustrating for littles when they can't communicate. Sign language allows your baby to tell you he needs something without having to vocalize.
  • Baby sign reinforces vocabulary development and of course works on hand movement ability.
  • Some studies show that baby sign can increase a child's aptitude for literature in text (i.e. they'll like books more), and that it can help increase early understanding of complex sentences.
By the way, almost all baby experts agree that teaching your baby sign will not interfere with his ability to learn spoken language. I've heard this worry from some parents, mostly they point out that my son talked late. However, that's just not true - it wasn't sign that made Cedar talk late, he just happened to be a late talker. I've met plenty of babes who sign and talk early. Some research even points to studies that show signing babies talk sooner than non-signing babes.
