Toddler Sign LanguageI started using simple signs when I cared for a child who called her cup a "night-night". I tried everything to get her out of the habbit. I thought if I could get her to sign the word "cup" that would be acceptable. While I was at it, I learned a few other simple signs: please, thank you, cracker, cup, eat, more, etc.
At the time I cared for several children who were barely speaking yet. On the first day when I intoduced the sign language to the children something amazing happened; they all signed the words AND spoke them! It actually encouraged the children to speak. I have used sign language with all children ever since.
The little girl never said the word "cup" before she left my care, but she would sign it and that's all I asked.
