Ever hear of ‘Baby Sign Language’? Me neither. But look at this! I have always said that it is science that will blow holes in all the ‘pro-choice’ arguments. There will be more and more discoveries about how early humans are…well, actually human.
There is always alot of blather about ‘cognitive’ measurements, but this is one avenue that I think really starts to address how early little babies really learn about their world. And while there isn’t lots of research on it yet, mommies know how babies in utero interact as early as we can detect it. Until they have more on that, it is great that we have more information on early education ( with a whole new view of “early”!)
Research shows that a sign communication long before vocal communication is attainable.
Allows a baby express more than their basic needs.
Jumpstarts linguistic, intellectual and literate skills at the earliest possible; even paradoxically, babies speak earlier than non-Signers..
Research shows that being multilingual expands cognitive processes and intellectual skills.
Reduces frustration and builds trust between a parent and baby. Less crying. Minimalizes the “Terrible Two”.
Builds closer bond with their parents and siblings. Enjoy the interactive experiences with newborn.
“Minimalizes the “Terrible Two”.”??? Wow, I could’ve used that ‘in the day’.
