Sign language at home
"They can really babble together in sign language."
Should you even want to learn to sign as a parent, or can your child learn from other deaf people as well?
"I do think signing at home is going to be important to Fabian."
"My children know they have to use sign language with me."
"We often have the computer turned on: the archives of the Handtheater has lots of fun things for the children."
"If I don't know a certain sign, I ask my son."
"I sing Fabian a lullaby using signs, and I noticed that helped me learn signs as well."
"Signing has gotten better over the years."
"My parents thought it was important to eat together and talk together."
"Those Lotte & Max DVDs are amazing, for both parents and children. They help you learn really quickly."
"Guus sometimes helps Sam if he doesn't sign something correctly."
