More than three decades of scientific research (funded by National Institute of Health) has proven that communicating with your baby through sign positively affects the following areas:
Reduces tears, tantrums, & frustration. Allows babies to share their worlds, giving them a sense of pride and therefore boosting self-esteem and self-confidence.
By the time they were 2, Baby Signs® babies had significantly larger vocabularies than their non-signing peers and by the time they were 8, children who used the Baby Signs® Program scored significantly higher on IQ tests as well.

Just as a child who learns to crawl is more motivated to learn to walk, a child who learns to sign is more motivated to learn to talk!
