During the past decade, parents and caregivers have discovered the joys of using sign language with babies. Why use sign language with babies who can hear? Because babies can control their arms and hands before they develop the oral motor skills. Signing allows babies and toddlers to express their needs. Research shows signing reduces frustration and stimulates brain development. Presented by Jenny Lief, a speech language pathologist, in partnership with Hudson Hospital and Clinic. Participants are encouraged to attend without their babies so distractions are minimized.
