  • My son knows the alphabet. We added sign language to our homeschool curriculum for next year.

  • Wow! Go her!
    My daughter doesn't know any sign language. I used to know some, from a card a deaf man was handing out in exchange for any amount of money in front of a store once, but I've forgotten it all.

  • My daughter and I went to a class so we knew a lot, but once she started talking we stopped. I should've continued on it with it as she talks incessantly. The signing would've been peaceful;)

  • He was taught a few by ECI, but not much. He knows 'more,' 'eat' and I think 'milk.' I'm not sure if he knows anything else. Wasn't really anything we kept at. I am partially deaf, but I never learned ASL.

  • We started about 2 months ago, ds is 16 months and he now knows:
    Yes, Eat, Water, Juice, Milk, More, All Done, Dog, Fish, Baby, Time, Please, Thank You, Sorry, Where, Hurt, and he's learning more. We love it, I wish I'd started earlier.
