  • Your baby may speak earlier, have a larger vocabulary & higher IQ if you sign together.
  • Your baby will feel more secure & content when communicating clearly with signs.
  • Your baby will establish closer bonds & connections with you and other adults that sign with them.
  • You’ll feel happier & less stressed when you know what your baby is communicating.
