Signing Success Story #11

Signing Success StoryToday’s signing story is about a pair of brothers who have been part of our Lone Star Signers community for about a year. I LOVE having sibling sets attend class together because each child learns differently. I think sometimes it’s easier for parents to be consistent in signing with their younger children when there’s an older child (or two) to help. Watching these two boys grow, learn, and giggle together has been a real treat!

* Child’s name and age:

Baker (4 years old) and Brady (22 months)

When and why did you start signing with your child?

We started signing with Baker so we could communicate with him before he started talking.  Brady ended up learning so much in the class!!  He has been one of the biggest influences on Baker’s learning since he loves to watch Big Brother.

Baker signs BLUE!

* How has signing made a difference in your family?

Baker can easily communicate his needs without knowing how to say the actual words yet.  Attending classes also created a special time of fun for my boys and I to laugh and play completely uninterrupted.  I also made some new friends along the way!!

* What would you tell a friend interested in signing with their child?

It might seem like signing isn’t working with them, but give each child time and you will be surprised by the results.  If nothing else, everyone has fun, which is really what childhood is all about.
