Baby Signing Classes

Baby signing is a lovely form of pre verbal communication which can enable babies to communicate long before they can talk. This is because they are able to make simple language signs with their hands before they develop the ability to say words. This is extremely useful for parents, extended family and others caring for little ones to know as research has also shown that babies can understand much more than they are able to say. Baby Signing been around for a long time but has become increasingly popular over the last 10 years as a wonderful way of enhancing communication.
