Baby Sign Language, a specific gesture-based communication designed to interact with infants, has become popular in the past couple of years. It is designed to help extremely young children express their wishes and wishes faster than they would normally be able to. Child gesture specialists think that only by removing the barrier between a child’s way of communicating and their ability to express themselves, anger and outbursts can be prevented.
Babies between the ages of five and six months can acquire the necessary basic cues which include objects or ideas such as “hunger”, “milk”, “drinking”, “tired”, “hot”, “cool”, “play” “bathroom” and “soft toy”.
The ability to express simple things could help the interaction by making a link to the spoken words. It can also aid in the subsequent development of verbal and textual modes of interaction.
The benefits of sign language for children
Here are some of the benefits of teaching sign language to your children:
- the greater ability to grasp verbal language, in particular between one and two years.
- faster use of verbal communication skills
- early use of the sentence form in verbal communication
- reduction of children’s moans and screams
- best parent-child relationship
- possible increase in IQ
- Signing up improves your learning experience for the rest of your life.
Most sign language families said that young children could express more to parents during key times, even feelings.
Every parent of a child understands. It can be difficult to know why the child is behaving this way. However, the gestures allow the child to express himself differently.
What is the best way to teach children sign language?
You have to create the sign every time you say a sentence in daily life. The secret is dedication and perseverance: say the phrase “milk” and make the gesture “milk” every time you offer milk to the kid.
Specialists advise that any gestures that parents choose to introduce initially should be used in conjunction with speaking out loud. It is essential to always show the gesture and say the phrase or word.
Never be discouraged if the child does not immediately replicate a gesture. You will have to show it multiple times over several days until they get it.
The following tips will help you teach faster:
- Start by displaying just a few symbols
It will be easy for parents to remember when to show gestures and perform them regularly. Only start with words that you find useful, such as “eat”, “drink” or “sleep”.
- Constantly utter the words that the gesture represents.
Parents want gestures to serve as a link to oral communication rather than replace it. Keep using the gesture every time you say that term it represents – continuity is important.
- Don’t be too quick to sign up.
Children acquire by repeating. So when you ask the child if he is thirsty, use the “drink” gesture many times as well as the phrase question him uniquely each moment: “Do you want something to eat?” “Would you like to eat?” etc. When creating a gesture for a thing, point to it, indicate the location, and then perform the procedure three more times.
After several weeks of focusing on the initial cues, expand the baby’s vocabulary by using object gestures that arouse him. Babies usually pick up fast and love to make gestures for objects or people they adore, such as books, toys, dolls, hats, even pets or creatures such as a puppy, parrot, or fish.
