My children are both hearing, but I wanted to communicate with them before they could talk. Both of my children (presently 2.5 years and 11 months) started signing at 10-11 months. We started with a few simple signs ("more" and "please"). Both of those alone helped lessen the frustration babies have when trying to express themselves or ask for something. That is probably the best part for them. They are not equipped to communicate verbally so young, but really would like to get their points across.My baby is so excited to know I can understand what she's saying and help meet her requests. In addition, it makes going out in public peaceful. No more screaming baby for things--they can sign for things. This is especially helpful at mealtimes in restaurants AND at home! Note: I found that my 2.5 year old was talking earlier than many of her peers--and her first words were the ones she'd been signing for weeks already! My 11 month old attempts to speak with some of her signs--but her signs help us understand what she really wants. This video helped us learn some useful signs and both my girls still watch it. Each word is written on the screen with a picture relating to the word. It is also said verbally. The author then is shown signing the word. Pictures and signer are shown alternatively 3 times for repetition. Pictures change but relate to the word. (for example for "bath", 3 different photos or video clips are used to demonstrate "bath".) My 2.5 year old has now asked me what a sign is for something she wanted to know! I love that she really wants to learn this. I'm excited there's a See and Sign, Vol. 2 and I'm ordering it today. I also love that this video uses American Sign Language (ASL) and doesn't just make up signs. This way my children (and myself) are developing a useful second language--not just a language between ourselves.
