Baby Signs game

Introduction

Click on one of the eight symbols to watch Justin demonstrate a baby sign. Learning and understanding the words in sign language can be a very useful aid for communicating with a baby or toddler, or a child with a learning disability. And it can be a very empowering developmental tool for the child.

How to extend the fun

Have a go at signing these words yourself. Watch Justin do it a few times and then have a go. Some are easier than others - you might need to practise some of them a few times before you feel you've got it right.

How to make a magic moment

When you've practised signing the words, it's time to have a go with your child. See if they can sign any of them back to you.
