Sign language for babies and toddlers

6 day(s)

Cours d'étude en ligne de 6 jours sur une plateforme web et 3 heures avec un enseignant.

Objectives

Babies can quickly learn to sign. Their language understanding and motor skills develop much faster than their ability to speak. And they love to imitate: most babies, for example, figure out how to wave and point a finger long before they can say "bye bye" or "look at that!"

  • Most baby signatories speak earlier than babies who do not learn sign language.

Why use sign language with my baby?

The simplest answer is that using signs allows your baby to express himself in gestures before he can speak in words. Research shows it can help your baby learn to speak in words earlier.

Many people teach their hearing children a little ASL before they can even speak. This can help toddlers learn to better express their needs effectively before their verbal communication develops. ASL is a visual language and often uses sign variations to create visual stories. The process of creating these stories involves critical thinking that could be applied to storytelling and creating messages in other languages!

7 benefits of sign language for babies

When you give babies specific tools to use for communication, it allows them to explore language and understand how it works. Here's a look at the many important benefits of baby sign language:

  • Gives the child pre-verbal ways to communicate
  • Help the child to understand the language
  • Increase communication opportunities
  • Reduces children's frustration
  • Reduces frustration and confusion for caregivers
  • Strengthens the social and emotional bond
  • Help the child learn that movements have meaning
  • Is My Toddler Too Old For Baby Sign Language?

Simply, no.

Teaching methods

Langue des signes pour bébés et tout-petits

Points covered

La langue des signes peut être un outil précieux pour les tout-petits, même une fois qu'ils peuvent parler, car il peut être très difficile pour eux d'accéder et d'utiliser les mots parlés qu'ils connaissent lorsqu'ils sont inondés de grandes émotions (frustration, colère, etc.).

Les experts en signature de bébés croient que la frustration et les crises de colère peuvent être évitées en comblant le fossé entre le désir de communiquer et la capacité de le faire. On pense également que les nourrissons qui apprennent la langue des signes pour bébé obtiennent des avantages psychologiques, tels qu'une amélioration de la confiance en soi et de l'estime de soi.

Plus de 30 ans de recherche ont montré que les personnes autistes non verbales peuvent apprendre à communiquer avec la langue des signes. De nombreux enfants autistes réagissent bien à la langue des signes car elle est basée sur le visuel et fournit un mode de communication rapide. La recherche montre également que cela peut en fait aider les personnes non verbales à devenir verbales.
