Use sign language to communicate needs!
Sign Language Cards and books are a great resource for using signs with Infant and Toddlers. Using sign language with little ones is a useful tool for supporting them in communicating their wants and needs and further developing their language.
The more ways we provide children with tools of communicating the easier it is for them to get their needs fulfilled.
