I'm looking for a website that has a printable dictionary, but I'm not having luck finding one. What's a good website for this?

  • I would recommend www.signingtime.com

    Frankly even if you can only afford the first dvd, it will be the best investment ever !!!!

    Also even going to the book store, they have baby first sign books, it would proably be easier to just start there. They usually show all the basic signs.

  • LOVE the Signing Time videos!!! They are also available at most libraries! Not only did my sons pick up ASL, they also picked up some words!

    Rebekahs Mommy...I started from birth. Just doing the sign. More to get me in the habit at that stage, but they see it from the beginning. Usually, babies will start signing back around 8 months, but understand the signs WAY before that!

  • I love this one! You can pick specific signs to print out. There is a section on the first 100 signs.

  • I have a deaf step-sister-in-law and her son was shown sign language, as well as spoken to in english, since he was born.
    There is a good chance that he will become deaf in the future, but right now he is a hearing child and communicates well with his mother, or should I say, she communicates well with him and he understands her perfectly.
    I plan on learning ASL so that I may communicate with her and with the residents in the area who will be coming into the physician's office that I will someday be employed at.
