Have you heard about baby sign language? Have you tried any signs with your baby?
I’ve been doing some research on sign language for babies and am intrigued by what I’ve read.
Babies desire to communicate their needs and wants, yet they lack the ability to do so clearly because the production of speech lags behind cognitive ability in the first months and years of life.
Speaking involves so many complicated skills. Babies must learn proper placement of the tongue, how to form the lips, to use the nasal passages, to control the vocal chords, and how to regulate their breath. All of this besides associating certain words with their meaning.
