Monthly Article Section:

I've had a lot of parents over the years who have questioned the use of baby sign with children with special needs, in particular children with Down syndrome.

This month we look at the benefits of using baby sign with Down syndrome babies.

Check out all the article listings from previous newsletters or the latest blog posts listed on the right.==>

Your Stories:

"I think baby sign is fantastic and used it for my first child, she is now 20-months old and speaking in sentences!!

It reduced so much frustration and she learnt it so quickly. I definitely plan to use it with my second (due in three weeks) and recommend it to everyone.

I've had friends start using it with their toddlers who aren't yet talking and they've seen great results!!

Keep up the great promotion and work for baby sign!!"
