Sign with Your Baby: How to Communicate with Infants Before They Can Speak

Front Cover
Northlight Communications, 1999 - Family & Relationships - 106 pages
Infants have control over their hands long before they develop the fine motor skills required for speech. By teaching their infants to sign, starting as early as eight months, more and more parents, grandparents and caregivers are recognizing the many benefits of this early communication. In this book, author and researcher Joseph Garcia offers a straightforward and lighthearted approach to teaching infants how to communicate using simple sign language. This method does not require learning an entire new language. Rather, Joseph teaches how using a few simple gestures can make a big difference in empowering and meeting the needs of your baby.--From publisher description.
