Teaching Signs for Baby Minds(TM) teaches you how to communicate with your baby or toddler before he or she can speak! These fun, easy-to-follow DVDs show you how to use American Sign Language (ASL) to teach your baby how to communicate wants, needs, and observations. Teaching your baby sign language is a gift the two of you can share throughout your lives. Learning signs can also have a profound effect on your child's developing mind. Researchers have found a 12-point difference in the IQ scores of babies that sign and those that do not. This is a huge difference in IQ scores! Preschoolers who learn to sign also test significantly higher on the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test, a common assessment of verbal ability used to aid school placement.
