BabyFirst DVD "I Can Sign" #signlanguage #asl

BabyFirst is the cable and satellite programming that targets babies, toddlers and moms.  I Can Sign Is one of many educational shows you can find on BabyFirst.

Teaching babies sign language is very beneficial.  Even just teaching basic signs can cut down on frustration as children are able to communicate their needs more effectively.  When children are frustrated, tantrums and tears often follow; signing can help reduce this frustration.

I taught both my daughters basic sign language and they were able to use it to communicate effectively long before they could do so verbally.  Even after they were verbal, it was still helpful as my eldest had difficulty saying milk.  I knew what she was saying, but no one else would.  When I left her with the sitter, I would show the sitter the sign for milk and there were no problems with the sitter understanding my daughter.

Some people think that teaching babies to sign delays their verbal communication skills.  This isn't true.  In fact, both my daughters were early talkers.  I think signing gave them a sense of mastery in communicating and they were more eager to use words.

BabyFirst has generously offered to giveaway the I Can Sign DVD to one of my lucky readers.  Just enter the easy Rafflecopter Giveaway at the end of my post.

I would like this DVD to give to my sister-in-law who is pregnant with her first. We taught our kiddos to sign, but my husband and I took sign in college. Would love to give her this gift.

For some reason there's not a rafflecopter entry form showing up for me? Is this giveaway over?

win for the family, our youngest is going to Easter Seal program and they are teaching him signs and it would be nice for the whole family to watch the dvd instead of the little sheets they send home with him.

I think that it would be perfect to teach our infant to "speak" before they can actually talk and I think it would be great for the whole family to learn!

I would love to win this for my younger daughter! I think it would be awesome to learn together with her! I don't have cable or satellite so I haven't seen the channel the show is on, this would be very educational.

when i was 2 my ear drums collapsed, i had T-tubes placed in both ears and had serious infections and complications after. My mom learned sign language and encouraged my sister and other family members to learn so if i was to be deaf we could communicate. the good news is i can hear but the sign language our family learned has helped. I want my 2 year old and 2 month old to have the this cd so one day when i cant hear any more we can communicate <3
