Toddler Interpreter® is a sign language for babies that you can begin teaching and using with your baby from as early as 6 months and as late as 30 months. Toddler Interpreter® has been uniquely designed in five easy signing stages of learning so that the most relevant baby signs are taught first.
Baby sign language involves the use of speech while concurrently signing with your baby. It uses a vocabulary of keyword baby signs and gestures to support speech development in your toddler. The Toddler Interpreter® baby sign language has been specifically developed to help your baby communicate their needs and wants. Signing with your baby will help reduce the frustration of the terrible twos.
Toddler Interpreter® is a speech development tool for communicating with your pre-verbal baby. The baby signs are so easy to learn and are lots of fun for the whole family.
Toddler Interpreter® incorporates natural gestures and modified traditional sign language signs. Toddler Interpreter® is a modified version of sign language because many of the traditional signs are too difficult for young babies to learn in the short time that they are used. We feel that it is not age appropriate to base the sign language in the Toddler Interpreter® resources on the American Sign Language (ASL) alphabet like most other baby sign language products do. A nine month old baby does not have any concept of their ABC’s and so we feel it is too much to ask them to finger spell words. The simple gestures used in Toddler Interpreter® do not require fine motor skills, making it quick and easy to learn for both babies and parents. Parents do not need to know ASL to be able to teach their babies sign language using Toddler Interpreter® resources.
The signs used in Toddler Interpreter® are all very distinct from each other and generally only use one movement making it easier to learn and use. The baby signs used do not have to be perfect and you don’t need to be an expert, it is meant to be fun and interactive. You will find that your baby will catch on very quickly and will inevitably teach you a sign or two of their own along the way.
