I did it with both children. My son didn't start talking at 12 months, so at 15 months we started sign language, and speech therapy. He never did learn it. Actually, we were doing sign language so much that his little sister started signing at 9 months old. We weren't even actively teaching her sign language at that point, she just picked up on it. We learned that our son has autism, so that's why he never learned sign language.  But ou daughter did great with it.

I am sixteen and 26 weeks pregnant. I have a birth defect that makes my hearing gradually get worse. The doctors said I will be deaf by the time I am at the most 30. So I will definitely be teaching my son sign language and learning more myself too!

I was in school for sign language interpreting. (I quit when I had my baby and moved so I haven't finished yet.) I started signing with him from birth and just KNEW he would be fluent. He started talking first and only signs please and more when he says the words. My mom says it's because I talk so much no amount of sign language was going to override my mouth. Thanks Mom.

I did signs with all the kids (mine and those I nannied) from age one to 3-4. once they went to school they had no interest. But it helped with them being able to tell me what was wrong or what they needed before they could verbalize well

I'm excited about my little boy ( and future kids) learning 3 languages from a young age. It took me forever to learn Spanish and asl, and I'm having to teach my mom how to sign now and it's slow going.
