Title: Baby Signing

Jane lives in North Shields with her husband and their daughter, Abigail.

Jane has been signing with Abigail since she was very young. Her hope is that, before Abigail is able to speak, she will already be able to communicate with her parents and so hopefully avoid some of the frustrations toddlers can have through not being able to talk.

Jane also hopes that the signing will complement Abigail's language skills as they develop.

Jane has enjoyed the whole baby signing experience so much that she's decided not to go back to her old job and has started to run baby signing classes.
