I was sent a review copy of Baby, Toddler and Preschool Sign Language which helps parents to learn several signs to help their children communicate. We've been working with sign with Liam in a limited capacity since he was little, and I still use sign as promts to help him find the right words - particularly help, stop, and thank you! He has the word more right down pat, so we've moved past that one with him, but I find myself reminded to start introducing sign to Erik and I've begun with more, drink and eat - the first three signs that Louise recommends in her DVD.
If your child is a visual learner like Liam is, sign is the perfect thing to incorporate as part of his everyday speech, so long as teachers, parents and caregivers are all on board. One of the things that Louise stresses in her video is that children may not make a sign perfectly, but will get it eventually if you model the correct sign when you use it - which makes sense! I find that Liam pays more attention and watches me more closely if I am signing as well as speaking.
Some of the things that I like about Louise's DVD are that you see a variety of children and adults interacting and demonstrating the signs and that it's bilingual - with instruction in Spanish as well as English!
I am able to giveaway one copy of Baby, Toddler, and Preschool Sign Language to one lucky AB reader in Canada or the US.
