Baby Signs® Program

The Baby Signs® Program was founded by “Dr. Moms” — Dr. Linda Acredolo and Dr. Susan Goodwyn — authors of Baby Signs: How To Talk With Your Baby Before Your Baby Could Talk. They have spent more than 20 years of research studies on child development, including a longitudinal study funded by the National Institutes of Health. Results of their studies showed that signing helps babies enhance their language, cognitive and social-emotional development. Their studies also showed that children who signed have higher vocabulary. They also found the following benefits:

 

  • Reduces frustration and builds trust
  • Allows babies to share their worlds
  • Strengthens the parent-child bond
  • Reveals how smart babies really are
  • Promotes positive emotional development
  • Boosts babies self-confidence
  • Helps babies how to talk
  • Jumpstarts intellectual development
