WHAT IS BABY SIGN LANGUAGE?

Little Leaps Sensory & Sign uses British Sign Language (BSL) to teach babies hand gestures that will enable them to communicate their needs and interests before they can talk. 

Building a method of communication will result in fewer frustrations for both parent and child. You will notice your baby become excited when they realise that you understand them, this in turn will increase their confidence. As their confidence grows, they will begin to sign more. As their speech develops, they will begin to incorporate words and signs together until they are able to talk. 

There are many benefits to teaching your baby sign language. There have been studies which have shown that language delays in babies and toddlers can result in behaviour problems. If babies and toddlers are able to express themselves through sign language then this will alleviate communication frustrations. Sign language is an excellent tool to start encouraging your baby to communicate.

ABOUT ME

...and my mini me!

Hello, my name is Sarah and I am the founder of Little Leaps Sensory & Sign. A little background...I decided to learn baby sign language after having my daughter, Phoebe. Subsequently, I completed a baby sign language diploma. Phoebe was born with microtia atresia of her left ear and wears a hearing aid. Baby sign language is intended for all children, both hearing and non-hearing, and all are welcome at Little Leaps. I love working with children and I am a qualified Primary School Teacher. Through going to parent/baby classes myself, I understand the importance of a warm and welcoming environment where parents/carers can support each other, whilst making special memories with their baby.
