Johns Creek infant child care tips: why your infant should be learning sign language

Posted on 06-22-2014


Infant sign language is a specialized method used to communicate with infants and toddlers at Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy in Johns Creek. This form of communication has become increasingly popular over the last few decades.

Infants from approximately six months of age can begin to learn basic signs which cover words such as thirsty, milk, hungry and sleepy. Sign Language will aid your young child in developing eye-hand coordination and fine motor skills. Eliminating tantrums can be a benefit of using this technique, and may result in a significant reduction of frustrating communication gaps between parent and child. Utilizing this teaching method promotes social/emotional development, and encourages a child to communicate and develop to their full potential.

Joseph Garcia, an American sign language interpreter, conducted research which showed that infants who are exposed to sign language regularly from six months of age can begin to use signs effectively by the eighth or ninth month.
